Pentax DA18-250mm by a mile.

My next most used lens would be the Voigtlander Nokton 58mm f1.4.

Whoa, hcc, I like your style (and I have both of those lenses too). However, for me it's the DA*16-50.

My most used lens is the DA L 55-300.

But I also use the F 35-135, and the F 35-70, and the FA 28-105...

Then there are the primes. The FA 50/1.7, the Sigma 50/2.8 macro, the A 28/2.8...

That really depends on the situation. Right now I'd say it's roughly a tie between the DA40, DA*55 and Sigma 14mm f/2.8 lenses. Those three are getting the most use right now.

Overall (since 2008 according to LR): sigma 17-70
Lately: DA* 16-50 and sigma 100-300 F4

But I use all my lenses on a regular basis (except for the manual 50mm`s, the fov isn`t really my cup of tea)

DA 18-135, although my Sigma 10-20 is such a fun lens to use that it spends more and more time on the K5.
