Just checked last folders with about 4000+ photos and the winners are (rounded shot counts):
1500 shots: DA* 60-250
1450 shots: DA 35 Ltd
800 shots: DA 12-24
160 shots: Rokinon 8mm (probably due to test shooting period as this is a new lens for me)
140 shots: FA 50 f1.4

Good question.

My five most used lenses (at time of writing) would be:

1) SMC Pentax M 400/5.6 has the pole position as my go-to bird lens.

2) SMC Pentax DA 70/4

3) SMC Pentax A 100/2.8 macro

4) SMC Pentax K 200/2.5

5) SMC Pentax DA* 16~50/2.8

and host of others tied for 6th place.

Cheers

Tom G

Most used (now) are:
1. Tamron 28-75 (mainly for events)
2. FA 43 (in between events and home use)
3. DA 12-24
4. DA 55-300
5. Tamron 70-200 (also for events)

but the list neglects my affinity for the FA 31, FA 100/2.8 macro and FA 77...

Sorting through 27,000 images in Adobe Bridge is painful, but here are the winners by focal length:

1) Pentax DA 10-17mm fisheye (by a wide margin - I use it for panos @ 50-70 images each!)
2) Pentax DA 70mm Limited
3) Tamron 18-50/2.8
4) Pentax DA* 50-135mm
5) Pentax DA 35mm Macro Limited

But that's historical data. For pure "fun photos" these days, the FA 43mm Ltd. and 15mm Ltd. are pulling ahead. Makes me wonder why I keep that 18-250 and 12-24 in the bag... hmmm?

Rock on, fisheye fans!
