If I had to use only one lens for the rest of my life, it would be my slightly wide 35mm f/1.4. This fast slightly wide-angle lens and my fast slightly telephoto 85mm lens are my "bread & butter" lenses. Approximately 80% of the 35mm format that I shoot and sell is made with those two focal lengths.

No 1 - My favorite lense is the 28mm f/1.4 AFD for a workhorse prime.

No 2 - The 28-70mm f/2.8 is my workhorse zoom lense.

I would also say the 50f1.8 except that I've seen some purple fringing and other anomalies with it so I'll vote for the 24-120VR instead. I do like the range of my 28-200, though. Too many choices
