Since I got my Kirk Focus Rail and Macro tripod it's been the 100 2.8 Macro. But for non macro it's been my 24-105 lately. It's nice to have a decently sized walkaround with IS that's not my former brick (24-70 mki)

That's my next lens. For the time being, my fave is my 70-200 f/4 L. Great for tight(er) landscape shots.
In landscape photography, when you shoot is more important than where.

Gear: Canon 5DmkII, 17-40mm f/4 L, 50mm f/1.4, 70-200mm f/4.

i just entered the world of great primes this year so i have to say the 35mm 1.4L right now. it has made me really want the 85L or the 50L though. i picked up the 85mm 1.8 to tide me over but i haven't really spent enough time with it yet.

i also really enjoy working with the 24mm TSE. shifting and then combining images to expand the field of view creates images that still really intrigue me. again...that lens has made me jones for the 17mm TSE.

its a terrible sickness this business is....

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.

If true, then your next purchase MUST be a FF camera.  Get a used 5Dc or 5D mark ii ASAP even if you need to sell other stuff to get it.  Once you see the 8-15 on a FF, the crop sensor camera you have now may never get used again!

I have a little lust for that lens...but for now my 85mm f/1.2L II has been taking the edge off of that for me...LOL.
That fast focus would be great in some situations..which is lacking in the 85mm...and with the 135mm f/2.0 you still get very shallow DOF.

Depends where I am, what I'm doing, or what/who I'm shooting =P But for the overall IQ and look I still love my 85mm 1.2L II despite it's weight and sluggishness compared to many other lenses it results in the best rewards :)
