Surely that is not as rare as the 1200/5.6.

I would get 20 leica lenses and then sell them and get the 3-4 Zeiss I need. Rest in the bank.

Nice Thread Peter.

I'm sad to report that i seem to be content with my current batch of lenses.
I would, however, love to buy that 70-200mm II thats on sale at B&H right now!

Unfortunately I'm out of the country with no place to ship to

No problem.....have the lens shipped to me as an interim measure until your return home.
I would test your lens against mine, and then I'd forward to you the sharper one, I promise.

Tom, clearly, quality is an overriding factor in your list. An interesting mix of brands.

Thanks Peter. Also, I mentioned the box on the Canon 50 1.0, then I could sent it to FL for John Power to enjoy this Christmas.

Tom, by giving John the box you'd probably steer him back to photography.

Since my Leica 50 post, I realized I already have over 20 Canon lenses, which is embarrassing and brings to mind the phrase, " a fool and his money".

4 of 70-200mm f2.8 IS II L
4 of 24-70mm f2.8 L
4 of 16-35mm f2.8 II L

2 of 200 - 400mm f4 L
800mm f5.6 L
400mm f2.8

17mm f4 TSE
180mm f3.5 L Macro
14mm f2.8 L
8-15mm f4 L fisheye

Why 4 of each for some of the lenses? Well, my friends and brother-in-law will then fly to an exotic destination 2 weeks each year for the rest of our life. I was going to say take a year off but we all have jobs and I need to be realistic about this.

We can share the single lens and rotate the longer lenses.

Okay, I'll play.

EF 8-15/4L fisheye
TS-E 17/4L
EF 24/1.4L II
TS-E 24/3.5L II
EF 35/1.4L (already own)
EF 50/1.0L
MP-E 65/2.8
EF 70-200/2.8L IS II
EF 85/1.2L II (already own)
TS-E 90/2.8
EF 100/2.8L macro IS (already own)
EF 135/2L
EF 200/2L IS
EF 200-400/4 IS Ext 1.4x
EF 400/2.8L IS II
EF 600/4L IS II

Helios 40-2 85/1.5
Nikkor 6/2.8 fisheye, just for the comedic value alone

I reserve the remaining two lenses for designs that do not already exist. I'm looking for an EF 50mm f/1.4 lens that won't break if you touch it, for example.

When I first read the title I thought. "only 20 lenses? That would cover everything." Then after composing a list I could see a need er, desire for more. Anyway this would be a dream set up for me. If I sat down and did it again in another hour or two it could be slightly different though, who knows..

20 Lenses

1. 14/2.8
2. 17 TSE
3. Zeiss ZE 21/2.8
4. 24 TSE
5. 24L
6. Zeiss ZE 25/2.8
7. 35L
8. Zeiss ZE 35/1.4
9. Zeiss ZE 50 MP
10. 85L
11. 70-200L II
12. 24-105L
13. 100L
14. 200L/2
15. 200-400L 1.4 TC
16. 400L/2.8
17. 500L/4
18. 600L/4 II
19. 800L/5.6
20. 200L/2.8 or MP-E 65

A smart choice....I'd go for 50 f/1.0L too, as opposed to one of them Noctilux lenses.

It's cool of you to be thinking about your friends and family while doing this.
