Funny when i bought my 5dii I couldn't decide between the 24-105 or the Sigma 24-70 - the extra stop vs the length, so I bought both. I've hardly ever used the Sigma, found it too short - it's more like 24-60 really. Need to sell it i think. Keep hoping that Canon will bring out a new 50mm 1.4 with a decent focusing system and i'll get rid off the current 50mm 1.4 and the Sigma 24-70 and just have one low light prime.

Canon 15-85 on a 7D. Covers 90% of my needs. Recently got a 70-200L but not using it a great deal yet.

Canon 100-400L for wildlife and some landscape stuff, 17-40L for most of my landscapes and 24-70L for most everything else...

I find that I leave my TAMRON 18/200 more than any other lens......it can go from wide to zoom very quickly, and can do a fair macro shot.

It does have its down sides but it will have to suffice until I can afford the SONY version for my Sony A55.

I do have a couple of expensive Primes and Macro lenses......plus quite a collection of old Minolta and medium priced others.

I find the Nikkor 24-120 f3.5-5.6 VR a good allrounder, use it most of the time.

Also Nikkor 50mm f1.8D can be handy

I've never taken pictures in a convenience myself. I suppose you'd call that a bog-standard lens? Wink

My favourite lens, however is my 180mm f:3.5L macro lens, with a 50mm F1.4 comping a close second.

Well thats easy! I only have one lens!!! My trusty Sigma 17-70mm f2.8-4.0. For the price I paid i thinks its a cracking little lens. Covers pretty much all I need at the moment . . .though i have been lusting after the Canon 17-55mm f2.8 for a while now . . . . . !!

My old 18-70 Nikon kit lens that came with my old D70s - still the sharpest lens I have and very light weight too, I just wish it had VR. This was a cracking lens and I cannot see why Nikon discontinued it.

Canon 24-70 2.8L , a pretty much perfect lens apart from the horrendous weight !

Panasonic 20mm f1.7 on M4/3 (FF equiv: 40mm). Then the Olympus 60mm f2.8 macro, and after those two primes, the zooms.
