The 85L. For what I shoot, it produces results that are better than I deserve.

Let's hope the best lens I ever buy will be my 20-35mm f/2.8 L. ;) For the moment though, my fantastic plastic serves me well.

Best lens' I have bought has to be the Tamron 60mm F2.0. I have never owned an L lens but I just cannot for the life of me imagine that you could get better quality. Maybe I'm just being naive! The fact that it doubles as a portrait lens and a 1:1 macro makes it a very versitile lens.

70-200 f4 IS. A helluva lens on the ff. It's what a zoom should be.

200L f/1.8 (The Holy Grail) on the 5DII, period...
Heavy as hell with no IS, but if I nail the shots, it's all worth it...


Love KWANON... :cool:

I'll make the first vote for the MP-E 65mm f/2.8 1x-5x macro lens. It's not the most versatile, as extreme close-ups is all it can do, but I'm finding it consistently rewards practice and perseverance with better and better images. It can show details in the final image that you simply can't see by eye, often even through the viewfinder when you take the shot. It has transformed my garden into a safari park.


Mark.

Probably my 50 f/1.4 even though I sold it. It turned me on to primes. The 4 I have now are all about equal and have their own purpose. My 30 and 85 are the perfect range of primes and the 24-105 an 70-200 f4 IS are two of the best zooms and I love that they have some overlapmto reduce my need to switch back and forth.
