Have your say: Best prime lens of 2018

With the arrival of two new mirrorless full-frame formats, it's no surprise that there were a lot of lenses released in 2018. And after going down the list (and checking it twice), we've narrowed the selection to 11 options that are awaiting your polling preferences.

Which of these lenses is most exciting to you? Which do you already have, or are looking to add to your kit? Let us know by casting your vote in the poll at the end of the slideshow. For now, let's take a look at this year's contenders.

For the purposes of keeping the list somewhat manageable, not every lens could make the cut - we've excluded some more exotic or third-party manual focus options, for example. If you feel that a particular lens that didn't make the list deserves attention, please let us know in the comments.

Voting runs through December 17th, and once the vote has closed we'll run a second poll to find your choice for overall product of the year.

Poll Rules:

This poll is meant to be a bit of fun. It's not sponsored, promoted or paid for in any way and DPReview doesn't care how you vote, so please don't start a flame-war in the comments. Our readers' polls are run on the basis of trust. As such, we ask that you only vote once, from a single account, and don't vote purely just to sandbag another product or brand. Don't be that guy.
