Of all my lenses the most I use is the EFS 15-85mm.

This lens takes most of my holiday shots where I am restricted to camera gear.

Easy. Zeiss 100mm f2 Makro Planar. It does everything well from close up to far away. From thin dof with bokeh to die for to corner sharp landscapes.

Tamzooka, no question. Can see so much with it. I often use it instead of binoculars when I'm out and don't want to carry both.

24-105mm all the way. Occasionally I have to try and remember how to change lenses to go wider or longer.

70-200mm f/4L USM, its a lens I can trust 100% every time no matter what I am shooting.

Rokinon 85mm 1.4....i love the challenge of this lens. The Canon 85 AF would be easier to shoot but....this one is more fun!


Me too.

I had an accident with my 24-70 back in January. I've been debating on whether or not I should buy another one. It's the Mark 1. Very versatile, but I questioned its sharpness at times. I shoot 2.8 all the time as well. :S It was a fun lens too.

Thought I would bump this thread... My creative juices have been bound up for too long and I want to walk around with a lens that'll perk my interest.

Thinking of nabbing a 100mm prime lens, maybe a macro just because I like to get close sometimes.

IF you want something in the 100mm range AND you like to get close AND you want some freedom for the creative juices, go play with a TS-E 90.

It just goes to show you that everyone is different - many have mentioned the 135L, yet I personally found it to be excellent but uninspiring.

100L! Such a pleasure to shoot with because it engages my imagination more than any of my other lenses due to its versatility (macro, portrait, landscapes). As a bonus, the image quality is amazing.

It's quickly becoming my favorite lens, though that title is currently held by my 50L :)

Usually it it the latest purchase, which this week is the Rok 14mm f/2.8. What a perspective! I don't need no STEEENKING auto-focus.
