Shure, y not

T1i with one battery and 3x (three) 4GB SanDisk Extreme III SDHC cards
Kit 18-55mm lens was sold new for $100 without even taking it out of the packing. (I don't regret this, but I don't recommend that for everybody, either.)

In order of use:
Canon 50mm f/1.4 - Used for thousands of exposures in the first year of camera ownership and still use it for lots of portrait and landscape / skyscape type pictures.

Sigma 120-300mm f/2.8L - My most recent lens. Used almost daily until just this last week (haven't been shooting much). With or without the 2X teleconverter, used for everything I can frame properly - natural scenes, some skyscapes, wildlife and bird photography.

Canon TS-E 17mm f/4L - I probably used this for at least hundreds of pictures (mainly because it was my only wide for a while) but use it rarely now. Still indispensable for some situations. I've used it for interiors and city / building photography, but mostly for landscapes.

Sigma 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 OS - retired. Maybe used for a couple thousand images. Not a bad lens and the OS probably completely outclasses the Canon 100-400mm's, but the wrong end of the zoom range is optimized for sharpness (120mm instead of 400mm like the Canon). I got to see the very different-looking Sony mount version (non-OS) when that was first shipped by accident. Used as a general purpose nature / wildlife / zoo type photography. Retired - too slow, 400mm is blurry even at f/8.

TS-E 90mm f/2.8 - I've used this less overall than the 17mm TS-E but I bought it for specialized situations where it's needed.

Fujinon 55mm f/2.2 (ring adapter for M42 screwmount) - Gives a nice 70s-80s look to images - warm, somewhat fuzzy-feeling blur quality. Fun to use and small. My copy has some kind of spot inside the front element (fungus?) but pictures still come out cleanly. Aperture blades seem slightly slow to engage but tapping the aperture pin shows they are still pretty quick and reliable, so maybe it just needs more use. Also, there's a crack on the plastic ring which lots the aperture scale, but so far it's holding. Was a kit lens on a Fujica ST-something. Used very rarely, mainly just as a test. I'll have to give it another go sometime. The quality of this old lens doesn't really amaze, and generally neither have samples seen online from old lenses, but the "full frame" look is unique and at this price it makes me interested in finding other similar lenses.

Makinon 200mm f/3.3 (ring adapter for M42 screwmount) - there's an "Auto" somewhere in the title, of course it's another lens with an aperture ring. Build quality is solid metal but still feels cheap somehow - not imprecise, just very spartan. A metal ring around the front of the lens slides out and is held in place magnetically, but is too short to be an effective lens shade. Probably bump protection. The front lens cap is metal with felt (or something) inside and does not clip on - it fits loosely. Unfortunately the lens optics seem unusable - f/3.3 isn't very fast, minimum focus distance is at least 10 feet, and manual focus seems almost impossible even despite a rather long focus path and with magnified Live View, partly because of color fringes on the edges of the zone of sharp(est) focus - behind is fringed one way, in front is fringed another way, and add in a large amount of blur to begin with - with an APS-C camera, the 10x magnification setting is clearly beyond the lens' capabilities. This lens seems most suited for roughly pointing in a direction and focusing roughly.

Canon 28-90mm III kit lens for the Rebel T2 used only a handful of times on the T1i. $20 with camera. I will eventually be getting a wider autofocus lens - the zoom range on this kit lens is nice and the optics really aren't all that bad, but aside from absolute quality problems it simply won't replace a f/2.8 or f/1.4 lens, so it's retired.

On a 7d:

15-85 about 60%
28 1.8= 20%
70-300 and 10-22= 20%

Oh, I've been shooting half a$$ serious for about 25 years. Started with my yearbooks in 1986, and I just turned 40.
