With the recent discussions of picking a favorite lens I figured we should also have a thread to provide opinions on what you would consider the three lenses for the NEX system that would make it complete for most shooting situations because IMHO one is never enough.

So lets hear what you would conisder your three all stars and why.

My three:

Sel 16-50 pz

My all arounder. Small and light weight and covers wide angle to portrait. For times i desire portabilty.

Sel 35 1.8

My superstar. Sharp, low light, indoor, and portrait use. For times I desire the quality of a Prime lens.

Sel 18-200le

My work horse. Wide to telephoto and everything in between. For times I am purposely going out to shoot but not sure on what and don't want to be switching lenses.

I also have the last 2 and agree they have to be there.  But the 35/1.8 and 18-200 LE are so good I really don't find use for another zoom in a top-3 - I'd add the Sigma 19/2.8 probably, even though it's not as good as the 30.
