Canon 100-400 L zoom, super versatile, long reach for wildlife, tight landscape crops and close up focusing for bugs and the like, it has rendered my 70-200 redundant.
Oh.......and fantastic image quality

I have a Tamron 14-150 micro four thirds lens.
It is a good general use/travel lens that delivers nice images across it's whole range.

The manual focus is smooth with the focusing ring in the correct place towards the back of the lens body (I another were it's too far forward for easy use).

Maybe, the lenses in my eyes as without them I would not see anything !

But I guess that is not what you mean Wink

Photographically I do not currently have one but perhaps from way back in film era my Olympus Zuiko 50mm f1.8 was used quite a bit, especially on skiing holidays.

For me, The Leica DG Summilux f1.7 /15mm for Micro four thirds. Noticeably better for sharpness and contrast than anything else I have tried on that format.

My Nikkor 70-200/f2.8E FL ED. It is so sharp. Not sure if that is down to the fluorite (FL) elememt.

I just love my Canon 70-200mm L 2.8 mk3 lens. My 100-400mm a close second.

Fuji 35mm f2 as its discreet, sharp and fun to use but then the pentax super takumar 50mm f/1.4 as it made me Think more about the feel then obsessing how sharp the image was.

Another vote for Nikon 70-200 2.8 lens, sometimes in conjunction with a matching 1.7 multiplier. Not the most often used, but itís still my favourite...makes better pictures than I can..Tongue

50mm EF 1.8 as its good in lower light.
But one lens - urrgh its would be like skiing with one ski.

The lens I have on my camera at the time.... including my vintage collection.

This isnít a flippant response, itís just that I enjoy challenging myself with having only one lens from my collection, on camera, rather than take a bag full.

I did post recently, that I have just sold all of my M 4/3 telephoto lenses....

It has to depend on what I shoot, and I gue that's why people have chosen the ones they have because thos are the lenses they're using for their favorite subject, so that's why I'd go for my 100 mm macro.

It's my 24-70mm, it's my go-to workhorse and my favourite lens. Suits my style and just right for my topics. I am also loving my 105mm macro which has had loads more use during the lockdown

I find that the standard zooms on my assorted cameras cover 90% of what I need. Maybe that's why it's the 'standard' zoom? Wink

Having said that, the Nikon-1 V2 has the 10-100mm (non-PZ version) almost permanently on it...
