This is utter nonsense, if you take it seriously. I don't care what brand you shoot - the best lens is almost always a prime. Frankly, I didn't have the patience to read every word, but someone said it was written 5 years ago. Some of these may not have been available then, but obvious misses include:

Nikon 14-24
Sony Zeiss 16-35, 85/1.4 and 135/1.8
Canon 85/1.2
Pentax DA*55 and FA77

About the only thing he was close on was the 70-200's. No primes for wildlife? He must be kidding.

I just love these threads

I'm sorry to say kiddies. Zooms are to the point where quality is as good as primes now. Big deal

Best is such a lovely loaded adjective

Anyway. thanks for the link

As the OP , all I can say is "Thank you, thank you very much." in my best Elvis impersonation voice.

I've got to figure out how to do a poll so everyone can answer. I mean this thread got some responses, 3 correcting my typo, another three or foour by myself.. but hey...at least 5 people were interested in the topic. I think there's room for some polling here. But, I just remembered I have to Q-tip my ears.. maybe I'll get on it in the morning.
