    Welcome!

    You have to tell us what type of perfection you want.

    Perfect lens for portraiture?
    Perfect lens for birding?
    Perfect lens for macro?
    Perfect lens for landscape?

    Or you just want a perfect daily-walkabout lens?

    You already have the best lens in the world! (your eyes!)
    hehe.. just OT

    like mentioned, find out what you like to shoot, then you will know what lens is 'perfect' for you.
    Life is short, so shoot more!

    Hi and welcome to CS ssangria.

    Perfect lens; is subjective to what you want to shoot, and how you shoot.
