My 24-70 2.8, but of course it was my first lens and I didn't had enough money to buy any other lens for a year.

I realize I'm not normal (otherwise I'd own a nifty fifty), but the lens I use most often is a 300mm f:2.8. Admittedly, the vast part of my work is action sports, but I find it gives a great "look" to almost everything I shoot.
If only I could make it work for tight interiors, I wouldn't have to carry anything else!

I am crop only....15-85 is my walk around, and I just bought a10-22, so that has seen use lately.  For motorsports (my volume shooting) the 70-300L.

I use my 50mm 60% of the time and my 24mm 50% of the time.  The rest of my lens are dresser queens.

Sigma 85 1.4. I love it. My new canon 24 1.4 L II is going to get a good workout too!

I just had a quick look in Lightroom. In 2010 and 2011, it was the 300 f/2.8, due to all the wildlife images. I haven't done much wildlife shooting yet this year though, so it is the 24 f/1.4 MkII (which is only about 4 months old). What is interesting though is how my lens use has altered over the past two and half years (it probably changed before that too, but I recently had to clear out my main hard drive, so it isn't as easy to check - I suspect the 17-40 featured highly though, as did the 100-400). In 2010, my second most used lens was the 100 macro (original, non-L), closely followed by the 24-105. In 2011, the macro and 24-105 were reversed, with the 135 f/2 closely behind. It reflects the type of shooting I have done, as I have found less opportunities for macro work and I fell in love with the 135 (a bit like I have done with the 24 MkII since).

More love for the EF-S 15-85, for general use it resides the most on my camera.

Id love to use my 70-200 more but it is just so big and heavy I dont like carrying it around with me too much.

Im beginning to enjoy the 16-35 MKII. It is great to carry when walking around in crowded areas.

Before that, its a toss up between the 24-70 and the 50mm. I carry the 50mm when Im out and dont have anything to shoot in mind. If I intend to go out and shoot something, I carry the 24-70.

So lets see here, that is 110% of the time you use one of these two lenses!  Make sense - lol

10-22 EF-s for storms, optics, any other sky thing.  Course I only have it and the 100-400L, with a nifty fifty for in between and low light.
