Indeed a very interesting Thread.
I'm afraid I'd have to be somewhat of a spoil sport: my favourite lens depends on what I'm after. For me, the principle asset of the slr is to be able to pick the "right" lens for the "job" at hand.
So, the question would translate into 'What's your favourite subject?'
The answer would then be: landscape.
But as it has already been pointed out by so many: there isn't a landscape lens .
So, if one would still insist in having me pick 1 lens, then I would revert to my film days and translate the phrase "Give me a fast 50 and I'll capture the world" into the APSC version "Give me a fast 30-something and I'll capture the world".
So the FA31 Ltd for me.
And the moment I say it, I already miss all the other lenses .
