My #1 choice is Loxia 25.

Second choice is CV 40E.

***************

I'm pretty conflicted these days since acquiring Batis 25 with its convenient AF. Also love the CV 15E, followed next by Loxia 35 and Batis 18.

Top of wish list is a decent priced used Batis 40.

Sony 135mm GM. It’s a marvelous focal length and excellent at tracking out toddler around. Sony 35mm GM as a close second.

It's hard to pick a favorite. I have many lenses with pleasing rendering, but I think focal length is what matters the most, and the minimum focus distance. That's why I have narrowed the list down to two lenses: Batis 40 and 135GM. If I'm going for a walk to see what catches my eye, one of these is coming with me.

Love the Zeiss 55 1.8 for street and general photography, and the Sony 85 1.8 for portraits

The Voigtlander 40mm 1.2 has been my favorite lens. The build, feel of the lens, weight, colors, rendering and sharpness really stand out. A frustrating lens to use for portraits unless the subjects remain stationary during MF but has the best output and WOW factor. I also love the 100-400..a great hiking bird photography lens. The Sony 20mm 1.8 has is quickly earning my appreciation (have only had it a relatively short period of time).

CV 40. I bought it in 2018 because of the thread and because there weren’t great 35mm options then. That and the CZ 35-70 are my 2 longest owned lenses, will be hard to part with them.

My friend made a graphic design of the CV 40 as well:

I would say Voigtländer 35/2 APO and 50/2 APO.

But most of the recent Voigtländers are very nice.

My most used lens is the Sony 200-600.
If you shoot wildlife, it's a must have lens.

I recently bought the 400f2.8.
At some point that will work it's way to my most used, but it's not there yet.
