    That I actually own--probably my 50 1.8

    Favorite that I don't own would probably be a 70-200 VR :o

    My personal favorite is Tamron 17-50 2.8. That's on my camera 90% of the time.

    I like the 80-200 best but I don't shoot that range enough so I probably use my 28-70 most.

    I'd love a 70-200 VR :yum:

    Just because something is popular doesn't necessarily mean it's all that good, though.

    Shit, even the 55-200, 18-55, and 18-70 are on that list.
