People, seriously? Discussing what your favorite 2 lenses are in the context of a house fire? What next - a thread where you're in a sinking ship and what lenses you'll save?

Whereas some people would take photos in their spare time, some think about what lenses they'll save in case their house burns down. Ha, that's why I love this forum. :P

Its not much different than "Imagine u would be on a desrted island. What would the 2 items (lenses in this case) you would bring with u?"

Don't ask me to choose between my children!

I'd take my 400mm f2.8 IS. Because I love it.  From an emotional standpoint I love this lens the most.

And my 24-105 f4 IS.  I know, I know! It's a "kit" lens.  But it has made more money for me than every other lens I have combined.  So I owe it something.

These desert islands much have an endless supply of batteries and AC power for all the walkman's and cameras folks have theorized about in the past.

I'd take my 70-200mm 2.8 IS lens mug that I just got for Christmas, fill it with water and put the fire out.  I'd also set my camera up on a tripod to take pics while I did this, so the newspaper had some photos to run with the story  :P

I would save my:

18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II
75-300mm f/4-5.6 III

Now that is some sweet glass there and I have just about all of the focal lengths covered!   ???

3.  I was just trying to creatively ask about your favorite lens.

135L

It might be the 200/2.0 or 300/2.8 but I don't have them.

Now if only there were a version of the 1D-X with 28MP and 7fps, let's call it the 1D-Y.

Kids, wife, cat, computer, wristwatch collection, camera stuff.  In that order.

Burn baby burn...

Hopefully I'll have my favorite lenses with me because I'm out all the time with the family taking picutres.

Everything else is covered by insurance!!!

Having shot with may fair share of L lenses, including my own lenses and others borrowed from CPS, I would have to say i'm quite enjoying my latest lens, the 100L... gives me lots of options I dont get with other lenses... the 135 is nice, but with no IS it has bit me in the butt too many times when my second shooters clamor for that lens.  70-200 is a sweet lens, but i dunno... from the F4 to 2.8's... they just has something that makes me wanting... cant quite pin point it.  Haven't tried the 85L... but for what it is... at this point of time, i'd give that title to my 100L
Canon 5d III, Canon 24-105L, Canon 17-40L, Canon 70-200 F4L, Canon 100L 2.8, Canon 85 1.8, 430EX 2's and a lot of bumps along the road to get to where I am.
