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.

i find when i go out now i just grab my G12, can't be bothered to lug a dslr about ! but a good lens for a lot of shots is my canon 28/300 but it's so bloody heavy !
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
Quote: Now, I find myself using 18-55mm most of the time for convenience
I've never taken pictures in a convenience myself. I suppose you'd call that a bog-standard lens?
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 !
300 f2.8 +/- 1.4 or 2x TC
Panasonic 20mm f1.7 on M4/3 (FF equiv: 40mm). Then the Olympus 60mm f2.8 macro, and after those two primes, the zooms.
Canon 24-105L for walkabout, Canon17-40L for landscapes
Canon ef-s 17-55 f2.8 95% of the time,it's a cracker!!!!
