Poll on lens kit design

Many people ask for advise on lens kit design, and having posted my own recomendations many times I thought I would try a poll on the ideas for lens kit design.

What do you mean by 'design' here? Are you looking for suggestions overall, or something more specific?

tried making a poll but it would not accept it.

Message was that I could only make a thread a poll within 10 minutes of posting, and actually had not finsihed the poll I guess in the time allotted.

This is my first try at a poll

The idea is to get stats on what forum members think the wide end of a lens kit should be, the long end, whether it is primes or zooms or both, whether the kit should have special lenses like fisheyes, macros, and extreme tele, and whether a TC shoudl be considered.

any help you can giv ein laying out a poll would be appreciated.

I have never seen a worthwhile poll, sorry. Too much is left out, it's poorly worded, etc.

And, all the mentioned subjects have been done to death.

But, knock yourself out :-)

What about the infamous Hellmans versus Miracle Whip debate of 2005?

Oh, sorry:

That was on a barbecue site I used to go to.

And I won't even get into the Heinz versus Hunts ketchup war of 1998.

That's probably a reflection of which forums you hang out in.
