Ultimate Lens for Nightclub Photography

The ultimate lens for nightclub photography would have to be very versatile. It would have to be able to handle wide shots of big groups and close up shots of one person in a nightclub environment. It should be able to shoot at a fixed aperture of f/2.8.

Because nightclubs can get really packed and there may be not much room to move, use a zoom lens for the ultimate flexibility in getting a wide array of different shots without the trouble of changing lenses.

The ideal lens for nightclub photography is a fast (f/2.8) zoom lens in the 17-50mm focal length for a cropped camera body and a zoom lens in the 24-70mm focal length for a full frame camera body.

The ultimate nightclub photography lens for Canon is the Canon EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM Lens for a cropped camera body and the Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM Standard Zoom Lens for a full frame camera body.
