Interesting to see that the Sigma 30mm f1.4 isn't mentioned at all.
To me too. At the time of compiling the list I had the 30/1.4 but it wasn't my most used lens .. it is now !

Bonjour Frogfish,

Just a quick question ... was the DA* 200/2.8 a part of your survey? I could not find any references. Just curious ... and merci d'avance.

Jean le Frog
Every lens that someone listed in their Top 5 Most Used lenses was in the survey. The DA*200 was in some lists but low down if I remember correctly (and so outside the Top 50 lenses I listed) - quite a specialist lens rather than a lens used for everyday use or as a walkaround.

Seems the DA15 is unusually popular here, whereas the DFA100 is unusually popular on the other forum(s).

I just checked my lenses against the popularity list. Turns out I'm the best... at buying the same things as everyone else.

Fun list and noit the biggest surprise to me is that a macro lens is on top. I don't have one, but you folks like macro's more then I do (I noticed over the years watching pictures).

My lensbag is not mainstream: DA 14mm, 21mm, 40mm, DA* 55mm, 200mm, 60-250mm and FA*85mm. (just sold my 50-135mm before the weekend).
I just found out that FA*85 is my most used lens since I bought it. FA*24 is second. Thirs lens is FA24-90 zoom and DA 14 is fourth.

Well, us "fisheye freaks" who use the DA10-17mm most of all are midway down some lists (#27 overall, and #24 on PF)... that's gotta say something positive about Pentax designing their APS-C fisheye as a zoom! My guess is that if it was a 10mm fishy prime, it wouldn't even be in the top 100!
