All my EF lenses are my favorites since they offer outstanding IQ, top league build quality and all of them are for very reasonable prices considering their qualities:

Sigma 14-24/2.8 : extremely sharp corner to corner wide opened, especially on the wide end, little vignetting, no purple fringing, metal construction.

Canon 70-200/2.8 III : a legend. Sharpness, AF speed, bokeh, internal zooming with very short throw, overal image rendering is awesome.

Sigma 105/1.4 : a category on its own. Obscenely nice bokeh, no fringing, fully usable at f/1.4, portrait masterpiece. Extremely well built, fast focusing, exceptional price/performance ratio.

And the best for the end: Sigma 40/1.4. This is a complete perfection in lenses. Sharpness corner to corner at f/1.4 better than many well perceived zooms at f/8 (like RF 24-105/4 for example), as well as contrast. No aberrations, super nice mild soft bokeh, strong 3D pop, extremely fun to use since its output is just amazing. And its low price is hard to understand, considering the optical qualities, metal build and overall performance. Even with double price it still would be very interesting lens.

If I should keep only one lens from all of mine, this would be the one.

lets just point out how moronic canon are being stopping 3rd parties from making RF lens!
