What is Your Favorite Lens?

A recent survey of DPS readers found that 75% of you have DSLRs – so I am sure that among us all there’s a wealth of experience when it comes to lenses.

So what lens you do like using the most? Which stays on your camera more than any other lens? Why do you like it so much?

Please give us the make, focal length range and aperture so we can compile a list of the most popular ones.

PS: My own favorite lens to use these days is the Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM Telephoto Zoom Lens (pictured). I love it because it is fast (2.8 with image stabilization makes it great in low light) and has a really handy focal range which makes it useful for sports, wildlife, weddings/social gatherings and even portraits. The only hangups I have with it are that it wasn’t cheap and it’s the heaviest lens that I own (this isn’t one to hang around your neck for too long).

While I probably don’t use this as much as my 24-105mm lens (which is my everyday lens) – it is certainly is my favorite to shoot with.

OK – so that’s mine – what is your favorite lens?
