What's the first lens that made you say "Wow"
I'd have to think that it would have been the two lenses that I purchased with my first dSLR. Namely the 17-85 f/4-5.6 USM and 70-300 f/4-5.6 USM. Coming from a P&S this was a huge step up in image quality. I was WOWed more by the awesome sample images posted here than anything I took at that time. After those two lenses there must have been a few more WOW moments. I mean, each lens accelerates in it's own ways. Now, the Nikon CF M Plan 10x 0.25 160/- objective lens stands out as one that really impressed me. Maybe not by it's own optical qualities (there are many better lenses out there), but more with what I was able to do with it.
I'm in Canada. Isn't that weird!

I don't have any L lenses or other expensive lenses. The 40mm 2.8 has impressed the hell out of me though with it's size, weight and IQ. It's the lens I always use when hiking or just walking around.

EFS-60mm Macro. It was my first prime and my standard under water macro lens. Sharp as an L with nice focusing and bokeh. Though, if I can find a port for my 100L macro to go along under water the 60 will be for sale. The 100L is phenomenal, and it should be!

My 70-200 f4L IS! Partly it was the build quality, and the weight was just right. It's a wonderful lens - quick, fun focal length, and so sharp wide open! Oddly enough I'm actually getting ready to sell it off because even though I adore it, I almost never use it anymore. I think I might cry a little when I finally do.

Yeah, probably my old 85l, even though I've now sold it. Too bad wow pictures of static objects aren't what I shoot regularly... But my 70-200II does wow me regularly, just so sharp at 2.8!
