Canon 200 2L

Having seen your fabulous images with this lens, I can guess why. If I had any aptitude for portraiture, a wheelbarrowfull of money, and lots of time, that would be the lens I'd most like to own.

For this lifetime however, my 100L is likely to be my favorite.

Thanks, I have shot some with the 100L and it is a great Canon lens.
I have been bitten by the Leica glass bug. The 200 2L will probably go next year as I switch over completely to Leica M over the next few years. Thats the plan anyway. Hoping that Leica comes out with a new M-E with new CMOS sensor and without all the stuff the M has. So a couple of those if it happens and a 21 Summilux and a 90 summicron.

Canon EF-M 22mm 2.0
Cosina M-42 50mm 1.7(100 times better than my Canon 50mm 1.4)
Tomioka M-42 135mm 2.8

I have 11 lenses but those are my most used.

35L is my absolute favorite everyday but the 70-200 II is my biggest money maker on my daily assignments.

My favourites: 70-200 f/2.8 IS II, and the 16-35 f/2.8 II
Can rent the 16-35, but definately going for buying one.

So far my Canon 85 f/1.8. I am just captivated by the tack-sharp focus and narrow depth-of-field. But so far I've been brushing-up on my portrait skills indoors, so I haven't really had a chance to give the zooms a good workout. I thought it would be too long but it turns out to allow some working space between the camera and subject for head-and-shoulders shots.

Surprisingly, I'm not real happy with my 50 f/1.8. Absolutely hate the focus ring. I'm thinking of selling it and getting either a 1.4 or an older 1.8 with a real focus ring.

Vivitar Series 1 28-105 and Vivitar Series 1 70-210 f/3.5. Smoother, better damped zoom and focus mechanisms than anything made today. I believe the versions I had were made by Tokina.

I love my 70-200 II - it creates amazing shots. My new also-favorite is my 24-70 II. It's stupid sharp. Even my wife, who's no photographer, said that it produces images that are spectacularly sharp and vivid.
