For both photos and video: 24-105 by far.
For photos only - 200 f/2.8L II - for sports assignments. 3003 photos in 2011, mostly all from sports photos this past fall.

24-105L but I recently got some primes (135L and 50 1.2) so not for long

Same one it was in 2006 and every year since then, I don't even have to look - the 24-105. Followed by the f/4 70-200, Zeiss 100mm macro, 24mm TS-E, and the 17-40 (I'm actually not sure I even used the 17-40 this year, when I want to lighten the pack it's the one that gets left home). The 24mm TS-E was only recently acquired, if I had owned it the full year it would be much higher on the list but the 24-105 would still be the leader.

I shot relatively little in 2011, so it must have been the 70-200/4 IS. In 2009 and 2010 it was the 5000/4 IS.

WOW! a 5000mm f/4.0 with IS too! Geez, where'd you get that and how much did you pay for that! Is it hand-holdable?

That was just a typo, but it is too late to take back now.
IIRC my 500/4 was $5200 when new.

For my 5D2: definitely the 24-105 for landscapes, but the 100-400 got regular use for landscape macros as well. Also used the 24 TS-E II quite a bit for landscapes later in the year.

For my 7D bodies: the 100-400 saw the most use, but due to a birding photo trip to Ecuador, the 500 f/4 IS and 400 DO lenses saw a great deal of use as well.

Good to see equipment being used!

For something different, how about a Contax N 24-85 on my Canon 5D2?
Mostly because of a few trips when I wanted a convenient AF zoom with Zeiss color and contrast.

1) 35L
2) 24-70L
3) 50L

Surprisingly close between these three, almost within 10%.

I got the 35L in April.

35L about 50%
50L for 40%
100L for 10%

My 24-105 got 90% use on vacation. Next time I'll take it and the 35 or 50.

17-40 and it wasn't even close. The Magic Drainpipe was a distant second.

sigma 10-20mm. I do a lot of cheap night club events work and that lens probably does 1000 shots a week.
not including that work though it would be the sigma 30mm f1.4

The 24-105 was used for the vast majority of my travel/landscape photography followed by the 100-400. I'll add that the G10 was either 2nd or 3rd as I did a couple of backpacks this year.

135L = 40% of my photos. I was a little surprised it was that high. It looks like I shot primes for 90% of my photos vs 10% for my two f4 zooms.

That depends;
family stuff: 24-70 (18%) - not a huge margin... closely followed by the 24L2 and the 50L (gasp!)
travel stuff: 24-70 and 16-35/2 (tied at 17%)
assignments: 15mm fish and 16-35/2 (tied at 22%)

Because the assignments outnumber my personal stuff 1000:1 for the past year, I think the 16-35mk2 wins.
