SMC Pentax 67 55mm F4.

The weight of this mother the first time I held it. Then again, a Pentax 6x7 is no lightweight

Rent a Canon 24mm TSE for a weekend. "Edge to Edge Sharpness" become so real.

Not sure how many people mentioned the 100L macro but I'm sure many mentioned their first L; that being it for me... such a dreamy, cinematic quality that I couldn't believe was possible even on my crop body.

Most recently it was my 100L Macro that I bought last year. This was the 6th exposure I took with it:

Handheld!

The first lens to make me go "wow" was my 35L. This was my second L lens after the 24-105 that came with my 5D2.

I like the way you make it sound... that a 7D is not capable of capturing "WOWish" images... lol..

nah, I just heard from a lot of folks that the 16-35 is not such a great lens on a crop, which is crap...I love my 7D

I don't think that's what he meant. Pretty sure he meant it because of the crop factor. The 16-35 really "wow"s on full frame...everyone who looks through the viewfinder of my 5D2 with the 16-35 attached gasps at how wide it is...you don't get that with the 7D. In fact, if I was shooting a cropper, I wouldn't have a 16-35 at all.

dats what I meant, I have a 10-24 Tamron for UWA

My 70-200 F4L IS, was the first lens I bought after the kit lens and have sense been hooked on wanting more "L" series lens and better lenses in general. Next purchase will be a 100L macro.

It should have been the 17-55, but mine started life with a front focusing issue (fixed by Canon).

The 70-300L, with this shot.

I would have to say hands down the 100mm F/2, at the time it was just too long on my crop sensor for what I was shooting. Still regret selling that lens. Some of the sharpest glass I have ever owned. Second would be the Tamron 17-50 non VC.

Going from a 18-55 kit lens to the 17-55...definitely a wow.
