What is the lens you find using the most ?

Most camera time gets my Nikon 24-85mm VR.
I didnt find a lot of info on this lens but since I got it and saw how sharp this lens is it gets a lot of camera time.
Its fast enough for most occasion and the VR is very effective but as I said the one thing I mostly like is how sharp it is.

it depends on what I am shooting...

Macro - Nikon 105
Nature - 70-200 VRII
Landscape - either the Nikon 24-70 or 14-24
Portraiture / events - either the 24-70 or my 85 1.4

I guess my macro lens stays on the most if that is really what you are asking... but even that changes since I add tubes, TC or Raynox, and vary which flash, and how it diffused.. and that varies a lot.

My general purpose 'go-to' lens is the 24-70; but for single-person portraiture my 85 1.4 is what I do most of my shooting with, followed by the 70-200...

The one that gets use the most is the one that gets the job done. The job in turn determines the lens that gets used. There is no right answer here grasshopper.

Well I own a:

18-55mm f3.5-5.6
50mm f1.8
28-105mm f3.5-4.5
70-300mm f4-5.6

Which I use on a 1.6 cropped sensor (compared to ff)
My go to lens in that range is my 28-105mm which I do admit has its limitations but whenever I don't have it on I miss the reach. If I had one lens out the lot it would be that one. It does have limitations mind you.

I'd say it's probably my 100mm macro. Followed by the 85mm 1.8.

The last few weeks it's definitely been the 40mm STM - but I just got that, so I don't think that counts. Of course I'm going to use it all the time right after I got it, lol.

24-105 f4L - 50%
16-35 f2.8L - 20% and decreasing
80-200 f2.8L - 20% and moving up quickly
135 f2L - 10%

<1% 85mm f1.8 - recently sold
<1% 200 f2.8L - recently sold

That's for indoor events at church. Outdoors, city scapes, and trains, the mix changes to about 33% each the first 3 and the 135, almost nil.
