I LOVE all my lenses for what they do!

But the recent (2 days ago) arrival, Sigma 8-16 has me floored! Below is a 1024x682 Field of View photo at 8mm.

If you click on it, it will take you to my Photobucket page. At the bottom right, there is a magnifying glass icon. You click on the icon and then again on the next photo it will bring up and you will get to a full resolution photo. It doesn't fit the screen but you can move it around to look at the detail at 1:1! The lack of appreciable distortion and the detail even at the corners are amazing to me.

When I only has a crop body, 17-55 and 70-200 f/4 IS are my favorite. With 6D, I am not sure yet.

85LII > 35A > 70-200LII > 17-40L > 24-70L > 50II

Based on love for IQ. I use the 17-40 the most I think. The 85L is my baby.
Not completely sure about the 35A on the second place yet. Got that lens yesterday so haven't really used it yet. Tommorow I can shoot a wedding with it.

Zeiss 135mm 2.0 and the 21mm 2.8

Both fantastic lenses that should last me decades.

my favorite two are the 135L and 35L but closing in at 3rd is the Rokinon 14 which is super fun to use and comes at a reasonable price.

I really like my 85 1.8 and 24-70 2.8 those stay on my camera most of the time.

My absolute favorite would be my 50L, although the lady can be a real b*tch sometimes.

First runner-up would be 17-55, then 70-200 II, which comes in 3rd only because I don't have much cause to use it, but it's a knockout lens!

Canon 24-105 and 70-200 F4. Plus I like my 70-300 IS USM (sometimes with a 1.4 ext.) when I need more reach.

I had a 400 f2.8 like that once, a trip back to canon had it removed :)

In order of use
70-200 f2.8
16-35 f2.8
400 f2.8

I really don't like carrying the 400 any distance though, especially the older versions - the 500f4 and newer 400 are a delight by comparison.
