Great to hear; so you have a 20mm, 25mm, 45mm and the 75mm?

With the 25mm and 75mm combo, what percentage would you said that covers for you or do you use those the most? I saw in another thread someone had posted some pictures with the 75mm at a wedding, but they sure didn't look impressive. Everything else I have seen though on the 75mm is amazing.

Good question. I'm still kind of trying to figure that out, since I just got mid-November. When I was in Chicago for Thanksgiving, I had 92 keepers and here's how it broke down (I didn't bring the 20):

9-18mm: 28
25mm: 33
45mm: 1
75mm: 30

But I'm not sure if I got that much out of the 75mm simply because it was so new and I was excited about having it. I'll have to see what the numbers look like in a few months of use...

It's an incredible lens though. I'm anticipating that I won't be using the 45mm as much unless I'm in doors where 75mm is too long.
