    Here are some most popular DSLR lenses

    arranged them in three categories - Canon, Nikon and Other based on popularity.

    How do you think of this list? What's your favorite DSLR lense? is it on the top line?
  2. My 80-200 f/2.8 is my favorite by far...
  3. My 70-200 f/2.8 and 24-85 f/2.8 are my favorite.

    I have a tough time choosing between the 12-24 and 70-300 VR. So very different, but both are great.
  7. I am a one lens guy and like traveling lite in the field. So the 18-70mm Nikkor
    DX ED lens is my favorite. I just love a short zoom for all of my work.

  8. Current favourite is 85 f/1.8, closely followed by 50 f/1.8 - slowly falling out of love with zoom lenses.

  9. OK, the question is my Favorite (vs. my Best).

    I love all my glass, each has its particular place in the line up.
    But my all time favorite would probably be my Nikkor AF-S 17-35mm f/2.8.

    I sold the one I had when going to MF primes only. But when I migrated back to AF, this was the first lens I got again.

    For me it's my 50 1.8. But now that I have the sigma 30 1.4 that might change.

    My favorite

    would be my Nikkor 24-70mm.
  13. My 28-70 f2.8 "Beast". Has been for years and still is on my D300.

    Did you notice the number of consumer lens on that list? And the 50mm is the most popular??? Come on!!! Who responded to that list - must be mostly none pros or people without pro lens.
  14. 1) 70-200mm 2.8 or 10-20 mm

    I'm not totally in love with any of my glass. How sad is that?

    But, either the 85/1.8 or 10.5.
