That's tough - is this a trick question?

I'd have to say the Sigma 35 f1.4.

Ask again tomorrow.

If its a Nikkor, any 85mm 1.4, from the AIS to the current crop. If Canon, the 85mm 1.2 MKII, because the DOF is to die for, well, for me it is! I think the 85mm would cover sufficient areas in photography, especially, if you make it! The rest depends, on whatever I feel, or shot that day. I like primes, and here is my list when I strike it rich in the stock market, 30 years from today! Zeiss, 35mm 1.4, Zeiss Distagon 21mm f/2.8, ahh heck all primes all day 24/7 from Leica to infinity the sharper the better.

Zeiss 21mm 2.8 if only 1. The Sigma 35 and Nikon 85 would be my next 2 choices.

I like the 35/1.4L on my 1Ds2. Wondering about one of the new Sigma's, though.

My choice would be a Canon 5D3 (I currently use a 5D2) and my Zeiss 21mm f2.8.....

It is wide enough to encompass a 'scene' without too much distortion. It looks good to many people. I could almost live with two lenses - 35mm and 135mm - but for the darned 70-200 being so useful.

I just got a d700, Im looking to get some good lenses and have been debating if to get the 50mm or not since im looking to get the 85mm as well. Maybe 35mm - 85mm is a better choice? more expensive duh


Hows the sigma 70-200 btw? Any experience with that?

Having just one prime is like trying to eat just one Doritos chip, but if there was just one left in my bag I would hope it was my 135L.
