    Hey peoples. Regardless of brand or format what is your favorite lens (that you own) ???

    I only own 2 lenses. My 24-105 f4L and my 50mm f1.8. When i had my 30d the 50mm f1.8 was awsome because it was a makeshift macro lens. Now that i shoot full fram it is wider than i would like and i use it much less. I would say i like the versatility of my 24-105 and right now it is my favorite lens. Sorry if you think this post is lame. Im bored and i have no real photography questions :greenpbl:.

    It's a tie. 24-70 F2.8 L and the 50mm 1.4. Both get equal playtime. My 70-200 and 10-20 only come out to play on rare occasions.

    I have to say that it's a tie between the 50mm 1.4 and the 85mm 1.8...
    And a close second would be the 100mm 2.8 macro.

    Actually, maybe the macro is in first...

    Man, that's a tough question. My favorite is usually the one I have on the camera at the moment! But, if you were to pin me down and twist my leg and make me say "Uncle!", I'd probably say 70-200 f/2.8 stabilized and a prime 85mm lens of f/1.8 or faster aperture.

    Definitely my 100 mm macro. I've only had it for two weeks and it's already my favorite!

    Right now, probably the Canon EF-S 17-55 f/2.8 IS. It is a fantastic workhorse and has served me very well every time I use it.

    Wow. An official "Honeywell Pentax" body. I'm impressed.

    However, I can't determine if it's the screw mount like mine.

    "an official Honeywell Pentax."

    Did you notice it even has the HEILAND importer/distributor lettering as well?
