Hey, what is your guy's favorite lens? If you were stuck only using that one lens for the rest of your life, could you manage with it?

I realised a while back that 200mm is really not any significantly bigger than 135mm. 

 

Regardless, I'm a sucker for punishment. This is my rig for my daughter's school's sports festival tomorrow. Sigma 50-500mm. The professional shooters who go to the events usually carry two cameras, one with a 24-70mm and one with a 70-200mm or similar (I forgot what the Canon equivalent is).

Sigma 35mm 1.4. I could live with it because I have a Sony RX-10 for just about everything else. I'll take that tomorrow as well, as I can use it when I get sick of the Bigma and/or want to take video.
