On crop camera, my favorite is the Canon 8-15 f/4L.  Full frame, I think I will love it even more.  The only thing I don't like about it is the lens cap.

I miss my 28mm f2.8 and my 200 f2.8 II

One less thing to think about with these lenses, and they required a more considered approach, rather than zoom to fit, you had to move to fit, with attendant effect on perspective and depth of field etc.

I don't know if these were better lenses, or just forced me to work better, but I usually got better results from them.

Both sold in favour of versatile fast zooms.

My EF 70-200 f2.8L IS II USM is my favourite lens,
but I use my EF 24-105 f4L most of the time.

Would like the 24-70 f2.8L II USM, but I have to save a little bit and the price needs to go down before I get that instead.

Believe it or not: the FD 85 mm/1.2L. I just can't afford the EF version at the moment, so I kept my A-1 just for this lens. I thought about an EdMika conversion, but with that, it won't focus to infinity on my 5D2. So, I'll just wait until I can afford the EF 85/1.2 II, which will then by my new favourite ...
