Which of your children do you like more?  :-\


It depends on the time of day and how long since the last meal - the order changes.

First you have  :), later it's  >:(, then it all ends in  :'(

Whichever one that gets me the shot I want!

My most used lens is my 24-105L.

Whatever gets me the shot.  I can't say that I have a favourite.

I have an 18-35, 50 and 55-250.  Usually I'm at either end of the telephoto lenses with not much in between.

35mm gets me probably 80-90% of the shots I look to take.

40mm has been good for general purposes.

35mm - Not that fussy huh? It's my most used focal lengths by far. My Zeiss is a 2/35 ZE so it does figure.

Still, my 24-70 does spend a lot of time on my camera too.
In the end, only the image matters... Not what equipment you used to get there.
