How many lenses for do YOU own?

Hi,

Speaking strictly about lenses for use with your current digital Canon body, how many lenses do you own? Do they get used and what for? Are you a collector? Here's my break down:

I own 9 lenses for use with my 20D. With the exception of the Quantaray they are all used often:

Quantaray 70-300mm f4-5.6 - not used

MP e-65mm - extreme macro of bugs, flowers and now abstracts
(see abstracts: http://www.pbase.com/iangreyphotography/abstracts )

Sigma 180mm macro - bugs, flowers, product photography, hummingbirds, etc. My most versatile lens.

Sigma 20mm f1.8 - Part of my low light kit, also does some interesting close up work

50mm f/1.8 - Is it a sin that I like this lens so much? Part of my low light kit and a great fl

85mm f/1.8 - Basketball basketball basketball. Low light kit.

135mm f/2 - Volleyball, basketball, night games, etc. Low light kit.

28-135 IS - close up work with flowers and my wife's bead sets. Good all around walk around lens for me

Sigma 100-300 f/4 - field sports

My Sigma 180mm and 100-300 f/4 get the most use, while I'm still finding out if the 20mm is going to fit in with my kit. So tell us all about your digital Canon body specific lenses. How do you use them and how often?

Ian
