Best zoom lens of 2020

The year 2020 might have offered us fewer chances to get out and photograph the things we love, but that didn't stop manufacturers from bringing a ton of excellent new lenses to market. We've had the chance to shoot with most of these lenses this year, which was in itself a challenge (someone has finally commented on a certain motorcycle that's appeared in many different sample galleries), but playing with new gear is always a joy.

We had our say already, in our annual DPReview Awards, but which lens was your favorite? This your chance to let us know. And if you think we missed something, please leave a comment.

Voting in three categories (cameras, prime and zoom lenses) runs through December 20th, and once the vote has closed we'll run a fourth and final poll drawn from the winners of the first three to determine your choice for overall product of the year.
