What's your favorite lens?

I have noticed that the glass one uses makes the most difference in the final results, as many have attested on this board. I was wondering what you favorite lens is to shoot with.

What lenses do you own?

Which one do you use most (i.e. "lives on your camera body")?

What types of shots do you take most often?

For me, it's the Tamron 70-200 2.8. Many folks say this lens is slow focusing or doesn't focus accurately (usually in making a case for a much more expensive rival), but I totally disagree. This lens is sharp, plenty fast and versatile . I use it mainly for sports, evening events, wildlife (with 2.0 Kenko TC) and even portraits.

I own the CZ 1680, Sony 35 1.8 and formerly the 70-300G.
