Old Pentax M42 mount stuff. 55 f/1.7 macro & 135 f/3.5 are my favs. Manual focus can be tricky but the 6D's standard focusing screen is actually pretty good for what I do. The colours are nice on both lenses. I have ML installed but find the focus peaking isn't precise enough over OVF to make it worth the battery drain shooting in live view.

Fav AF lens is the 50 1.2. It's an unforgiving hateful lens that make you work for your shots.

It's a hyperbolic way of saying there's no free lunch with a 50 1.2. I think it takes talent to compose compelling shots at 50mm. More so at f/2.0 or wider. I can point a 24-70 or 70-200 at anything and get a halfway decent picture.

More often than not the 50 1.2 is undisciplined, seductive and mischievous. But when it's good, it's phenomenal.

For me it's a toss up between the 85 or the 200... probably the 85 since it focuses better than the 200.

If you are talking 200/2, then you it's quite hard to find any lens that focuses "better" (in any sense) than it does. Your lens probably has some issues.

Much as I love my 24-70 F2.8 L V2, my 16-35 F4 L is is close - my other lenses are great too. But, for me, it has got to be my 800 F5.6 l IS closely followed by my Holga Pinhole lens.

Now there are two opposite ends of the spectrum! The 800 with all it's wonderful IQ and excellent AF vs the Holga with NOTHING! However for "FUN" they are very close!

It is all down to what you enjoy! Long may it be so:-P


Life is for living, cameras are to capture it (one day I will learn how!).

My Sigma 150-600mm Contemporary is the most fun and by far the most used. When I'm not looking to shoot something in particular but rather general wildlife, this is the lens I always have on my 7D2. As a newcomer to photography it still amazes me how much detail you can get in a super-telephoto shot; definitely lets you see things you wouldn't be able to get close enough to otherwise (especially animals). Not just good for wildlife, either, as I've gotten some amazing shots of the full moon, planes flying overhead, and all sorts of other stuff.

The most fun for me would be my 100mm macro, it is not my favourite or most used lens but it is one that I can pick up and get creative with even when I don't have long and cannot get out.

35 F2 IS on the 5d4. The next is 85 1.8. They are so light weighted.
