Even though the 50L hasn't left my camera in weeks, I would still choose my 70-200 II. Just has so many uses.

If I could only have one lens? The 24-105L IS f/4. I shoot FF, this is not the best choice for crop frame, IMHO.

There are few lenses with a better combination of sharpness, flexibility and versatility. However that may not be the best choice for anyone else, it depends on what you shoot most and under what conditions.

70-200 f/2.8 IS MKII

One of the most work horse lens, versatile, and prime sharp.
