I only have one L lens and that is the 24-105 f4 and for me it is a great all around lens that I default to. Would love to have the 16-35 so I will keep dreaming on that one

I'd go along with that as long as we're talking about the Mk2 TS-E

Well, I only have one, so I guess that's my favorite. But my next favorite "L" is my 85 1.8, oops. You mean it's not really an "L"? Maybe it should be...

After using most of the L primes, I've ended up adoring my 50L the most. 70-200 f/2.8 II for L zoom. Just like rwong2k above :)
