You could always drill a little bitty hole in the body cap and use the rig as a pinhole camera.....

I think the 35L might be winning this thread!

I'm actually very surprised by a few things so far...

The 24-105: Everyone wants to hate this lens in other threads, but in this one, everyone is claiming it as their favorite.

The 70-200s: Just the opposite here.. everyone always proclaims love for it, but then lots of people leave it at home because it's too big, too white, etc..

The 35L: This seems to be a perennial favorite lens on POTN, yet it's not getting as much love as one would expect in this thread.

17-55 IS on the 7D.
24-105 IS on the 5D2.
