To be honest, unless I'm on a job the cheapo Nifty Fifty is on my camera 90% of the time. I like the challenges it presents me, true, I miss some shots but I'm also forced to see differently to get many more.

One lens I make sure to have with me would be the 24-105L.
I guess it all depends on the job.

That lens is on my wish list, heard a lot of great things about it.

it really is an excellent piece of glass, I love it, if it was a bit quicker and constant aperture It'd be epic, as it is I am in love with it, its weird I'm never usually 100% satisfied with a purchase and this thing just cant stop impressing me
