If I could only have 1, I'd sell my DSLR and buy a p&s.... No point to owning a DSLR and being limited to one lens...

Minolta Rokkor 58mm f/1.2 - it is not my most loved lens (that would is Meyer Trioplan 100), but it is more useful for very different images.
It is very fast for avialable light or bokeh images, it is fast to focus, stopped down high image quality, great build quality. Focal lenght on 24x36mm DSLR is universal enough.

Well; unless that one lens isn't available in a p&s with a similar quality sensor.

Myself; I'm torn between a 24-105L for convenience (where you could actually do better/equal with a quality p&s possibly), or 50L.

I lean toward 50 for the nightvision. Not always the best framing in a situation; but that f/1.2 can do some interesting things...

Then why respond? Lord forbid someone ask something that is somewhat thought provoking.

I mainly use a 180L. But as an only lens, say a 60mm f2.8 or a 50mm macro on full frame.

I would have to go with my new Tammy 70-200 2.8 VC. That lens is on my 6D all of the time.

And quietly just because a digital SLR is capable of using multiple lenses there are many more reasons to get one than that simple fact. So the question, whilst I believe asked in fun, is entirely valid. A simple example I am unaware of a way to get the shallow depth of field of the 80mm 1.2 without a SLR or 1:1 macro without it.

That is a great lens, but if you are going for an all in one lens, the newer 1.4 IS version is clearly the better choice, esp with it being compact (4" and weighing only 15.4 oz).

Nah... Superzooms are not a good value! I read it on the Internet!:D

50L. It's a great walkaround lens and also works well for portraits.
