While playing with ExifTool, I decided to extract all the focal length settings I shot with the 18-135mm kit lens on my 7D. From this data it looks like a significant amount of shooting is at the extreme ends of the range. I guess this means I need more lenses. There's also a broad bump around 48 mm. But I'd have expected that to be around 32 mm. Maybe 48 is the new normal for APS-C sensors.

Here's a cool program that will take the work out of analyzing a folder of photos: http://www.wega2.vande​l.nl/ (external link)
