    ...you'd have a Canon point-and-shoot! We use dSLRs so we can change lenses...


    But, to answer your question, for a 1.6x crop body it would be the EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS. On a FF body it would be the EF 24-70mm f/2.8L.

    <div>Brendan, you'd have a camera on your lens, not the other way around, with that 18"/10-pound monster. Besides, aren't you always telling us to "get closer"? [:P]With a 20' MFD, you might need a bigger back yard!</div>

    I think I'd have to agree with your selections, neuro.

    If I will have one lens that would be a LEICA NOCTILUX-M 50 mm f/0.95 ASPH or a Carl Zeiss 50mm f/0.7 converted for use with Canon EOS body ( if conversion is possible )[]





    In the Canon lens line up, it will definitely be an EF 200mm f/1.8 L!

    If I could have only one, versatility would trump all. I'd go with the 24-105 f/4 IS. Not the sexiest lens out there, but if I could only have one, that would be it.

    sirhc_1 you cannot adapt the leica noctilux-M but you can adapt the Leica R f0.95, and yes you can adapt the Zeiss lens, however I am sure that this is not your choice if you could have only one lens. For me 24-105L f4 IS

    Sheesh - 5 opinions so far, and not one vote for the EF 15mm f/2.8 Fisheye. C'mon people, get creative! [:P]
