But if there's something such as regreting sale - it's my Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8......but I absolutely had to get a Sigma 30mm.
Plan to get Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 in the future!!!

Sigma 24-60 f/2.8... because it cost only $220 brand new from Cameta (before duty/tax/shipping). It's got good IQ and full frame ready, small and lightweight (compared to 17-55IS and 24-70L). Even if I could get $300 for it, I still think it's worth more. It's just not worth selling!

Every other lens I have could be upgraded to something better (ie. 70-200 to the IS version.)
