I'd say my 70-200mm f/4L IS. It's been a consistantly great performer and really came alive when I went FF with my 5D2. Although I complained about a usable focal length when doing portraits, I'm getting used to it.

I guess since I use it 90% of the time, it's my 17-55.

35L. I'd be inclined to say 85L, but the 35L shares the same amazing IQ wide open, coupled with much more usability FoV wise, so it's the one lens that's stuck on my camera.

My best lens is the TS-E 24 f/3.5 II. The IQ is amazing. My favorite lens is a toss up between the 35L and the 16-35 f/2.8 II.

For me its the 70-200F4L IS. The IQ is stunning on the 50D and 5D2 bodies I use and the zoom range works so well for a variety of uses.
