What? No option for the 800mm f/5.6L? :confused:

Fine then, 24-70mm f/2.8L gets my vote.

I'm surprised the 35 f/1.4 and the 50 f/1.2 each got less than 1% of the votes. I can't afford either, but if I could chose between the 35 f/1.4 or the 24-105 f/4 IS as my only lens, I'd choose the prime any day.

There were two I was going to vote for, based on recent use and neither were on the list ?? (unless I missed them). For the last 4 months, my walk arounds have been the Tokina 11-16mm 2.8 and the Canon 60mm 2.8. Not sure why they were left off?

I ticked the Tamron 17-50mm F/2.8.. I own and like this lens as a general purpose lens.. I often stick my Tamron SP AF 1.4X TC in my pocket just in case.. These two work well together..

In Scotland and New Zealand this lens 24-105 was my main lens and it was on my camera about 85% of the time, 10% my 16-35, and the rest between 70-200, 100 macro and 100-400.

I have a crop body I'm stuck between the 17-55mm and 24-105mm. I love the L but there's much good review on the 17-55mm. This is my first expensive glass and I want the best choice possible cause it's going to be a while for me to upgrade again. I shoot cars, random things, and night. Was going for 17-55mm but with 500+ vote on the 24-105.. Stuck again, is it because 24-105mm get the FF vote 2?

Yes, it is, and not only FF, even 1D series [1.3x] and also it is still great lens on crop bodies like 40D or 50D and xxxD series, this lens can be on any of my all Canon DSLRs cameras and it will work great, but 17-55 only on crop bodies then when upgrade you have to sell it or keep it only for crop bodies, and i will never try those ways of rear lens removing plastic or so to make this lens to fit on FF, so for that only 24-105 can get higher votes no doubt.

My 24-105mm stays on my XTi body 95% of the time and only comes off when I use my 70-200mm lens for wildlife shots and my 50mm for closeup flower shots..


Olympus PEN-F, E-M5 mkII, E-PL5, 12-40mm, 14-150mm, 40-150mm, 17mm 1.8, 45mm 1.8, Panasonic 100-300mm 4-5.6

I took a dive and went for the 17-55mm and hopefully upgrade to a 50D after I pay my debt for this glass. FF is not going to happen any time soon but damn the long zoom on the 24-105mm is so nice but I gotta have the wide angle and especially f/2.8. Sometime I get lazy and shoot indoor stuff to sell online.

Why EF-S 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM is not included into list?

I think one of the best walkaround lenses because its performing quality similar to 17-55 and has wide focal length.

I voted for 17-55 and 24-70 btw.


Canon 550D + 24-105L + 18-55 IS + Canon 50mm f1.8 EF II

Probably due to a couple of things:

1) The thread hasn't had any activity since July 2009 and is old as dirt before that;

2) The lens in question wasn't released until September 2009.

PM Mike (In2Photos) and ask him to update the poll to included this model. Welcome to POTN!
