24LII @ 1.4. It's just another surreal world out there when I use this lens.

24-105mm is hands down the best for me. I am in love with the 60mm Nikkor Macro on at my work though.

My favorite?
The 135mm f/2.8

Soft-focus? Interesting... I don't hear much about this lens. Can you share your reasons for it being your favorite?

24-105L gets the most use for me right now due to its versatility and light-weight. I won't say its my favourite of my gear, but it spends the most time on my camera and its a good little workhorse :) Saves my butt when its all I have on me.

85L is my favourite lens, its just very special - sharp, beautiful colour and bokeh. I use it when I'm feeling especially creative when shooting animals (dogs, horses).

70-300mm L is my newest aquisition and it comes alive on my 5D3. It isnt a lens thats overly popular/talked about, due to the multitude of 70-200's that exist already, but it focuses lightning fast, its tack sharp, and the range is perfect on a FF camera for sports and bugs/nature. I havn't had much time with it yet but it could creep into my favourites spot, due to the versatility and compact nature of the tele. I'd say right now its a very close second favourite.

The 50mm 1.8 is my lazy portrait lens :p When I'm going somewhere casual, where 85 is too long, and I don't feel like lugging my lenses around with me. It is my relaxing, just carrying my camera and seeing what happens - type lens.

Converted Minolta Rokkor 58mm f/1.2 as a fast normal lens with some glowing "effect"
And Meyer Trioplan 100mm f/2.8 for its unique bokeh.

Favorite prime: 50 1.2L used mainly for general purpose/walk around/street. If leg zoom is good enough, I like it for its aperture versatility.

But…The 24-105 lives on my camera for its focal length versatility and IS.
