Hiya everyone, was just curious as to what you would rate as the lens you cannot live without Smile I'll probably do a few of these in different threads about different items, not only do I find it interesting but it may give me an idea of some different kit I may need as it will other people Smile

The one that's about an inch from my nose - without it I couldn't see to compose an image Smile

It was a 28mm f2, but nowadays it's become a 35mm f2, most of the time (full frame format). Trouble is, we only have one of them at the mo, so SWMBO and I fight over it/take it in turns with that and the 28mm. So we're about to go out and buy another 35mm.

Yesterday tried the 70-200 f2.8, hired one out for a day, and didn't like it at all.

At the moment I have to say that my Canon 100 macro is not far from my 40D. I bought a macro ringflash and it's just so much fun, especially around the garden this time of year!

I have two - Sigma 150mm Macro for my dragonfly shots, Canon 100-400L IS USM for my aircraft shots. Couldn't be without either of 'em.

Canon 24-105 L.
Combined with the Canon 5D, they are stunning together.

My 35-100 f2 Zuiko, a tad expensive but a great bit of kit.

my 80-200 f2.8 nikor all glass and metal about 20 years old weighs more than 50-500 sigma.

Toss up between my Canon 28-135 IS and my Sigma 10-20 - I seem to have less expensive habits than most posting above Wink
