    You never specified what type of lens, so I am going to choose the huble telescope. lol it is one giant lens, and the things you can do with it are remarkable ;)

    Does it have to exist?
    Does it have to be something we already own?

    (this topic comes up once in a while in various forms... what is the nicest lens you have used? what is your favorite lens? What is the best portrait lens? ...etc...)

    It would be difficult for me to choose just one. I shoot primes so its like asking a painter to paint with just one brush...

    I wouldn't be able to pick just one...

    I like primes, so that means a lot of lenses...

    If I HAD to choose one lens, I would buy a bridge camera with a nice zoom lens.
