Yeah and it definitely wasn't the 17-50. I hate to say it, but I thought it was the Nifty. Man that thing has tons of nicknames.

Another vote for the EF-S 55-250mm being called the "Nifty Two Fifty!"

I've seen it referred to that on the forum a few times, and it definitely fits too since it's freaking awesome for a cheap price. :D

I always thought that the 85/1.2L was called "the razor".

200mm F1.8L- Holy Grail
800mm F5.6L- Ridiculous.
1200mm F5.6L- Why, just why?

For the Canon 10-22 since it isn't an "L"
would the nickname "econopano" fit.

I still think that the 1200mm F5.6L has to be called "The Eye of Sauron"
And the Canon 5200mm then has to be called "The eye of Illuvatar"
