  10. Don't use it often but really the sweetest: 85PC.
     
  11. Actually, I don't have a particular favorite. I have my favorites for specific situations, but I love all the lenses I have and favouring one would discriminate the other great ones.
    Well, I still have a Sigma 17-35 which I really don't like (unless I want a soft focus lens :biggrin: ), but it is bestowed in some obscure cup-board since years anyway.

    If I would have to name one lens I like more than the others, it's probably the 45/2.8 P, because it is so small that when put on I can put the camera in one of my larger jacket pockets :smile:

    (small, sharp, suits my range just right)

    I have too many lenses and try to use all of them, so "favourite" list would be long. But 200/2VR, UV 105/4.5, Rodenstock 50/0.75, 35/1.4, (any of the 50/58 Nikkors), 28/2, 17-35,17-55,85/1.4, any of the Micro-Nikkors *except* 60/2.8 and AF 105, ..... I could go on for a long time yet, but won't. There are so many lenses that suffer from being stood on a shelf or put in a cupboard, while they only thrive making pictures. :smile:
     
  16. Just like Gordon. Most used 17-55, favourite 70-200 VR.

    Almost everyone has a favorite lens and style to fit the focal range. Interesting indeed. :smile:
