For crop-sensor folks, what is your "everyday" lens?

I realize this may be hard because each of us shoot different things, but for you crop-sensor shooters out there, what is the lens that is on your camera the majority of the time? What is your go-to lens if you are heading out and you can only bring one?

Me? I don't have one yet. That's why I'm asking you all! :D
 
Yup, 24-70. I'm pretty impressed with it too.
 
I'm using my 18-135 kit.

What 24-70s do you guys own? I was looking at the 24-70mm f2.8L but thought maybe the 24 wasn't wide enough for landscapes.

24-70 2.8L, I don't shoot many landscapes so I'm no help there. I mostly take pictures of my own children.

Yes the Canon 24-70 2.8L. It's plenty wide. Would it be wider on the 5D MKII? Yes it would, but the 7D does just fine with it.
 
Another for the 24-70 f2.8L

L for me as well. Ultrawides certainly have their place but they aren't the only way to shoot landscapes.
 
Even though my 17-50 2.8 is technically my "best" lens I usually have my 55-300 on camera. I shoot mostly horse shows where reach is important and macro with extension tubes which work best with the 55-300.
 
I try to think about where I'll be all day and then pick one lens to take. Usually either the 35 1.8 or the 50 1.8. I just like them as an "all day" lens since they are rather stubby. I just picked up the 24-70 nikkor, and I'm loving it, but it is best in hand rather that hanging on the side.
 
I use a Sigma 50mm 2.8 macro on one body and my kit 18-55 on another body.
