    Probably my Schneider 135mm 5.6, although I am beginning to use my Schneider 80mm 4.5 more often.

    Tends to change with the subject for me. But lately seems to be ...
    150 followed by 305 followed by 80mm.

    Depends on the subject, but lately, the flower pictures have been the subject and I have been alternating between the 150mm G-Claron, 180mm f5.6 Nikkor-W, and a 210mm f4.5 Tessar. For landscapes or sharp portraits, I have been using my Fujinon 250mm f6.7, Germinar-W 240mm f9, and the aforementioned Tessar. The Germinar and Tessar are mine only due to the generousity of Kerry Thalmann who made them available to his fellow APUGgers. Thanks again Kerry!

    Probably the 110mm SS XL, followed by the 210 APO Symmar or the 240mm G-Claron.
