You do realize it depends on your subject. That makes this a silly question doesn't it?
Of course your subject and the circumstances dictate your focal length. The question is about your favorite focal length. If the situation calls for it, I’ll use a WA but I like shooting better when I’m using a zoom or a long prime. Sometimes the lens you like dictates your subjects and not vice versa.
I am sure the thread starter does realize this. What makes forums interesting for me is replies that flush out the details of what may be a very broad question. I often find replies that provide an insight I had not thought of.

Now that is funny. Reminds me of a truism: "What does it take to make a man happy? A little bit more than he has."
