Simple question... eager to hear as I am looking to add a lens to my stable.
Uhm, I have several, depending on where I'm walking.
Sometimes it's the 35/f1.4.
Sometimes it's the 18-200VR, especially when wandering around a city I don't know.
Sometimes it's the 35-70/f2.8, particularly when I'm wandering around a national park.
If I'm walking around a botanical garden, it's the 200/f4 Micro!
If I'm going out with a DSLR and only want to have one lens, it's usually my 18-135mm lens. Very light-weight and decent reach and has decent wide-angle.
18-70 kit lens for me.
18-70 for me too.
One of three: 18-70, 35 f2 or 180 f2.8
12-24 on D70, and 80-200 on D200. Just one lens, 24-85D.
Most used is probably the 18-70 followed by the 35 f/2.
If I'm going to be walking around outdoors I have the 18-135 mounted on the D80. If I'm going to be doing a lot of indoor shots then I put the 35 f/2 AIS on the D80 or the D2H.
Sometimes I carry both cameras to avoid changing lenses. The two camera walkaround kit is great if you're doing city-scape work and going in and out of buildings.
In film days, it was always the 50mm. I learned to see everything I needed through it.
Now it's the 85mm.
My 35f2 stays parked on my D80.
Wow. That's a complicated question. Primary, eh ? Well, if that means one lens sitting on the camera for a long time, I guess I can answer...
In cities, it's often the 24-120mm AFS/VR to walk around, except if it's night when it could be the 28mm f/1.4 or the 58mm f/1.2 "Noct".
In the wilderness where the critters are, it's often the 200-400mm AFS/VR (and ask Ron Reznick's class from last weekend if I don't shoot it hand-held) or if the critters are close and big, maybe the 70-200mm AFS/VR.
But if it's grand and large and beautiful country, it's likely the 12-24mm.
Now, doesn't that clarify matters beautifully ? :wink:
28-105 at first, then the 18-70
either the 28-70 on my D200 or 28-300mm Tamron on my D70
If I'm walking around the little lake here at home, I'll often put on a zoom, 70-200mm VR or 70-300mm VR. If I'm going downtown in DC to an event or to do the tourist thing, it'll be the Beast, with another couple lenses tucked in the camera bag, too. If I'm traveling (especially by air) to another place, and if the event is not really photo-related, the lens of choice will be the 18-200mm VR.
Trick question, Sir!
Wow... the Beast, 17-55 and 18-200 are neck and neck at this point. :smile:
The 17-55mm and the 18-200mm VR are both terrific lenses, but by gum, there is something about the Beast which makes me reach for it time and time again.....
