    anybody want to sponsor me a lens?
    your lens is good enough to pawn all (except prime lens) within 24-85mm range

    but heavy though...

    Here's my setup:

    Canon digital system:
    1) 17-40L - 20% as I use this to shoot from the hip from time to time. Used primarily on trips as I find a UWA is indispensable.
    2) 24-105L - 60% on the body most of the time as it really is a very functional, all rounded walkaround zoom.
    3) 50 1.4 - 18% used whenever my f4 zooms are unusable in low light situations. My main portrait and studio lens.
    4) 85 1.8 - 2% used on rarely as the focal length isn't as versatile as my other lenses. Am keeping though as it is a stellar performer great for upper half portraits and for a little action.

    Nikon film setup:
    1) 28 2.8 Ai - 50% on 1 film body at all times. Absolutely love my wide angles and this lens is a good performer. Use it out on the street where I primarily shoot.
    2) 55 2.8 Ais - 3% just have to have this macro lens. Superb performance whenever used. Share this between my film and digital setup.
    3) 50 1.8 series E - 2% rarely used at all as I prefer putting on the 55 2.8 for this focal range
    4) 105 2.5 Ais - 45% on my 2nd film body. Absolutely adore this lens and it's performance for wide open street shooting.

    Other than that, my two other lenses are hugely underutilized but I keep them because sometimes they are needed.
    Nikkor 55-200mm f4-5.6 L (cheapo telezoom)
    Nikkor 35mm f1.8 L (when I need to fit everything into pocket, or to complement 10-24mm in case I need a bit more zoom and don't wanna lug the kit lens).

    The L is of course, non existent in Nikon lenses but I thought it'll be cool to have it there since I always envy Canon users with L behind their lens descriptions
    I believe Nikon lens are already L by nature...don't need to declare further...

    17-85mm, used 3 times before I went for 17-55, still thinking about what to do with it.
    70-300mm, nature shots when light is sufficient or mid morning shots.
    17-55mm, almost all the time
    70-200 2.8 mk2, just got this ... likely to share primetime with my 17-55.

    Hmmm... Makes me re-evaluate my line-up and see what I can sell:

    (all on full frame A900)
    1. Sigma 12-24: When travelling, this is on my camera about 25%. Great great lens.
    2. Carl Zeiss 24-70 f/2.8: My normal walkabout lens. 75% while travelling.
    3. Minolta 50mm f/1.4: On my camera for about 20% of portrait shots.
    4. Carl Zeiss 135mm f/1.8: On my camera for about 60% of portrait shots.
    5. Sony 70-200 f2.8 G: On my camera for 20% of portrait shots, excellent F1 lens too.
    6. Sony 70-300 G: Nice long telephoto walkabout, great for zoo, birdpark, street shooting, etc.
    7. Minolta MD 7.5mm Fisheye: A classic lens... really underutilized. Unbelievable fisheye effect.
    8. Minolta 70-210 f/4 beercan: A 1986-made lens that still works perfectly... Underutilized.
    9. Carl Zeiss Jena 28-200mm lens: Never seen another specimen of this again, very sharp, underutilized but DANG I don't wanna let go...

    Tamron 17-50 f/2.8 > 60% my everyday walkabout lens, can take landscape, events, portraiture. I'm very impressed with its sharpness.
    Nikkor 55-200 f/4-5.6 VR > 30% very good but cheap telephoto lens. I will try to use it on taking macro with raynox DCR-250
    Nikkor 50/1.8D > 10% sharp, very nice bokeh, good for portraiture. Tried using with raynox DCR-250 for taking macro but find the subject too small in pics thus needs to crop

    I used to have Nikkor 18-105 f/3.5-5.6 VR kit lens....
