Mine is Sigma 24mm f/3.5 C. I mainly purchased it to pair it with my Tamron 35-150mm, but I also enjoy its MFD. Itís a fun lens to own.

CV15
It can be far from ideal for indoor shots but it does give some absolutely amazing results. I don't use it much but I feel like I'd miss it a lot if I sold it.

It mostly gives in the cupboard, but it does go out with us on our most special trips

I believe mine is the CV 180 f/4 (in Nikon F mount). I don't use it all that much, but there is definitely something about the photos from it. At the other end, I have the Laowa 14 f/4, which I love for it's super compact size.

A Fujifilm QuickSnap 32mm F10 lens adapted as a fixed focus lens cap lens just barely beating the Pentax Q 07 11.5mm F9 Mount Shield Lens. The fixed focus adaption of the Fujifilm makes it less useful.

I've had a few F8 mirror lenses including the Minolta AF one. I have the C/V 12/5.6 and 15/4.5. I feel like the Sony STF GM qualifies because of the T5.6. Lensbaby Sol 45/3.5, Cosina 100/3.5, and Minolta MD 135/3.5. The Sol is fun, but it could use a variable aperture.

F11 long primes aren't particularly rare. Canon released a couple fairly recently for RF.

I own a couple f/3.5 prime lenses. They tend to be smaller and great stopped down for landscape shooting.

Sony 35 2.8. Nice compact lens that delivers way above its size. Typically I use primes for their faster apertures, slower apertures Iíll stick with zooms.

Sigma APO 180mm f/5.6. Actually replaced the CV 180mm APO Lanthar with this this one because of Bastian's review.

I have a tie: CV 15/4.5E and Nikon 300/4.5 ED AIS.

The CV 15 gets used pretty often on landscapes, especially as part of a three-lens combo: CV15, Loxia 25 and CV40.

The Nikon 300 doesn't see much use, but good to have whenever needed.

Sony 35mm f/2.8 ZA and why? Pocketable! The lens hood design adds quite a bit to that.

Joshua, I think you forgot the 600 GM F4. That counts as a prime too.

Ah, yes, it is slower than f/2.8, you are correct. But it is hardly pocketable thoughÖ

Sigma 45 f/2.8 DG DN, got it at a good price to try out the rendering. Generally I think primes should be f/2 or faster.

Nice little lens, photos look nice even when it misses critical focus. Donít use it all that much, but donít want to get rid of it.
