Are you or someone tabulating the results of this? It is getting intriguingly interesting.


I haven't yet, but I think it would be VERY interesting to see the results. Might be nice to compare with a thread that asked what your least used lens was. Might be a surprise

On 1d3 - 70-200 f2.8 L (non IS). Fully half of the pictures that I didn't dump.

Interestingly, 70% or so were at 200mm.

Definitely 17-35L / 2.8. Love it for kid pics and for kid available light portraits. It is an awesome portrait lens when working outdoors, great background blur and tack sharp on my 20d and 7d.

Total number of shots would be the 70-200mm lens (Sigma 80%, Canon 20%) however this is due to shooting a relatively small number of sporting events and airshows. For more general daily use:

7D: Sigma 30mm f1.4
1Ds2: Sigma 50mm f1.4

17-55 about 30% of the time on my 7D (hike-able, low-light walk around)
70-200 f4is about 27% (also easy to carry while hiking, sometimes with 1.4)
400 5.6 about 23% (got into birding, this lens replaces former 300 f4is)

17-55mm f/2.8 IS
10-22mm f/3.5-5.6
135mm f/2L

In that order I think.

took a ton with the 24 1.4 II in NYC today but I still tend to doubt it jumped above the 300 2.8 IS or 70-300L
sports action simply piles on shots like nothing else
