I have owned a 50mm f/1.4 and it's great, however I sell to buy a 85mm f/1.8, then sell the 85mm f/1.8 as well to buy the 70-200mm, i plan to buy another 50mm f/1.4 in 2017

3X 200mmL = 200mm f/1.8L twice, and 200mm f/2L once.

3X 500mm, but all different models.

70-300mm DO USM IS. Got one new for my 10D way back when, sold it when I ditched the 10D and got a 100-400mm, then got a used one years later for my first "small" camera in years, ie: the 5D3 ;).

50mm f/1.8, hated it, gave it away. Now own and love the 50mm f/1.8 STM

I've bought the 50mm (1.8) for Canon 2x, then sold it both times. Then the same for Nikon 6x (1.8D 2x, 1.4D, 1.4G, 1.8G, then 1.8D again most recently). For some reason I convince myself I like it enough to have, then I end up rarely using it despite liking it for what it is. Eventually sell or trade for something more useful (last time traded for an old speedlight), but sooner or later I want another lol. I'm actually thinking about buying another now...but I'm trying to hold off for a 58mm 1.4, hopefully I would never sell that.

Bought the Canon 40mm 2x too, once when I shot the 5DII/7D setup, and again when i went back for a couple months to a 70D. One of my favorite lenses ever, wish Nikon made one :(

Also had 3 70-200's but different brands (Canon f4L, Tamron, and Nikon f2.8 VRI)

85L = twice. Would have easily kept it if the MFD was shorter.
24-70 f/2.8 = 3 or 4 times. I keep thinking that I need this lens, but as soon as I get it I remember that I really don't like it.
100L = bought it again after realizing I was stupid for selling it the first time.
135L = LOVE this lens, on my second copy now.

A lot of the time I sold lenses because I was financially hurting, and came to the conclusion I needed the money more than the lens. Now that I'm much better off, I can afford to keep around lenses that may not serve a primary role in my kit (the 135L is an example, as I have the 70-200 f/2.8 II). I'm getting a slight itch to re-investigate the 85L II.

100-400 a couple times
70-200 a couple times and various brands
35 1.4 a couple times and various brands
500 f4 a couple times
135 a couple times

Kinda funny, but each time I do this I learn a little more about how I like to shoot what I shoot. Sometimes the sell is a mistake and sometimes not. I've learned going over to Nikon that when I shoot seniors or family portraits, I really miss my 135 and Nikon doesn't have a replacement for it. Nikon has, however, taught me to love a 35 1.4, so I'll make sure I always have one of those in the bag.

What lenses you have bought more than one time?

The only lens I have bought more than once is the Canon 100-400mm I.S. version 1. The first time I bought it was because I wanted to shoot with it. The second time I bought one was because it was priced below market value; I bought it for $1,000 and sold it a couple weeks later for $1,300. I never sold the first one I bought until I had the newer version 2 model.

.


"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

3 x 50mm

And sold, with some regret, the 50L f/1.2

And a pretty good question.

I just bought my fourth 50/1.8 (and I'm not counting the 50mm f/1.4, which I also have). So far, I've given each 50/1.8 away as Christmas gifts!

Separately, I've bought "close" overlaps with the 28-105 and 24-105 in various mounts for AF vs. MF and Minolta vs. Canon mounts.
