The lens I'm using to get the shot, so that's all of them at one time or another.
Perhaps I'd go for the 100 mm macro.

I could live without any lens but the ones I'd most miss are, for 35mm use, a 135mm 2.8, and, for medium format (645) a 60mm 2.8.

There isn't a lens I couldn't live without. I go through phases as to what type of photos I look for, being without a lens would just change those phases.

That's the beauty of not specialising in one area and not being a professional. Smile

Either my left or my right contact lens... Smile

..and, on a camera, 50mm 1.8...but only because I can't bring myself to stump up for a 1.4...still a good lens though...

As I've 'gone off' ultra WA landscapes then it's got to be my 24-105 on the 5D. No WA distortion, reasonable zoom and good for panos. Good for portraits too. Smile

For me it's the 24-105, just a brilliant all rounder I find.

30mm on the XPan, for 35mm stuff probably the Canon 100mm.
