Which lenses are most susceptible to fungus?

Of course, improper storage can stack the odds against any lens, but some lenses are notorious for being more often seen with lots of fungus. Beyond that, the damage caused by a given level of fungus infection also varies wildly. So, here's a little poll with choices listed in alphabetical order.

What lens brand or line seems to have the highest fraction of the lenses they produced end up having serious fungus infections and/or damage?

Obviously, you can and should give more details in a posting here....
