For weddings, I use my 24-105 f/4 the most. Second is the 70-200 2.8, 50mm third.

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

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

 ;)

That's because he's using two cameras simultaneously at least 10% of the time!

I'm with you here re the 70-200 f/2.8isII. It suits my shooting style and the results just sing.
When the pressure is on, this is a lens I TRUST.

50L here too. I use the 24-70 quite a bit but by far prefer the 50 and now with the super AF on the 5DmkIII I will really put the 50L to a lot more use.

Ef-s17-55
Its fast and tack sharp. I love the low light performance on my 60d. I do wish they made a 55-150 to pair with it at 2.8 aswell.

Currently own only a crop body and my most used is my 16-35 II.   Wide to normal FOV, very sharp and no soft corners.   I'm wondering if this will change when I get a 35 f/1.4L (preferably mk II).

I have a 60D, so it's my Sigma 30mm when I'm shooting stills and my Samyang 14mm when shooting video.

When I get a 5D3 (hopefully at the end of the year) I think it'll be a Canon 50mm f/1.2L.

Right now, it's the 28-112 f/2.0-2.8 on my Fuji X10!

It's small & lives in my bag all the time, images & moves are great even in low light, & it's a pleasure to use.

And yes, the menu interface is a royal pain & the battery life sucks :-).
