Thanks to everyone that has posted their list of most used lenses .... any more lists before I publish the collated results ?
I was just about to ask if this was someone's intent. I'm going to guess that two of the lenses will be Limiteds.

We are currently at over 100 respondents and the rate of lists being posted is still a steady flow. Once that is down to a trickle then I'll publish the collated results (I tabulate them as they are posted).

For sure all the Ltd lenses are well represented, in the more than 150 lenses that have been listed to date, but I'm not going to kill the suspense just yet

2. DA* 16-50
3. D FA 100 Macro
