(And my walk around prime is the 35L - a perfect all-round focal length)

+1 for this prime as well

I'm using the 24-105. I have a 70-200 just in case.  2.8 glass is still a bit out of my price range.  I'm hoping to upgrade to the 70-200 2.8 by next year though.  The 40 is my body cap :p

I find that 80% of my photos are taken by either the 24-105 or the 24-70 II that replaced it.  They are fast, have the range I need for what I want to shoot.

I shoot mostly landscapes.  Of the remaining 20% it is split 15% for my 16-35 and the rest for my 70-200

35 L

It has the best AF of the shortish fast primes, really sharp and really creamy bokeh and it's not as wide as the 24 which tend to be overdramatic for most everyday shots. And the 50 isn't wide enough to give that uniqe look. Small and light and juuuust fantastic.

24-105L for most general shots.

For birding 100-400L and it stayed on my camera for a few days when the hawk came visiting.

200mm f/2.0 you can't beat magic
+1
That's your everyday goto lens?
Yes, If I go "light" ;-) (only one lens) + not knowing exactly what I will be shooting...
200/2 produce the best subject isolation and is usable on 2, if the sun goes down...
For an evidence: I do not go to shoot every day - 99% of the time I'm shooting at weekend.

I was surprised by the lens choice as well, however this is hard to argue with, it sounds like a nice day  :)
... except for me, it would be a nice convertible, but that's details  ;)

40 mm pancake. (used to be the 50F1.4, but the pancake is more convenient)

Canon 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 USM IS on my Canon 7D.

Love that combo... awesome image quality, portable, very versatile with USM & IS - and it didn't cost the earth!

I appreciate using my Canon DSLRs along with a host of lenses & many accessories to capture quality photos, and share with friends.

Canon's 185 mm macro...up close and personal to headshots to landscapes, does a great photomerge.
