Just curious, again ;)

Well, this was supposed to be a poll but I couldn't type 80+ lenses in the 15min time limit required for a poll....sorry.

my old walkaround or most used lens was the tamron 17-50. I've sold everything I used to have and just started fresh. Now, my most used lens will be the canon 15-85.

I don't have many lenses but the one i use all the time is the 100mm f2.8 macro. Simply because i can do so much with it. Macro. check. Portraits. check. Landscape. check.

The Sigma 50mm f/1.4 HSM and Sigma 24-70 f/2.8 HSM get about equal time on my 5Dii, while the 70-200 f/4L IS is a close third.


"Raw" is not an acronym, abbreviation, nor a proper noun; thus, it should not be in capital letters.

Canon 100mm macro gets by far the most use in spring time.


Some of my lenses focus beyond infinity...!
