    Canon FDn 85mm 1.8, I already have one, but it was so cheap (£39 about $65 US) I thought it's cheaper than getting the existing one repaired if it ever needs it, and this is the lens I use more than any other.

    A Canon EF 50 f/1.8 for my little Rebel T2, which I won on eBay for about $150 (the camera, not the lens). Usually I prefer my Nikon FM2n when using 35mm, but the Canon Rebel deal was too good to pass up. I'm not a fan of zooms (all my Nikon lenses and Hasselblad lenses, of course, are fast primes), but the Canon came with the "kit" 28-90, which is OK as zooms go. But being a tradionalist, I just HAD to have a fast standard lens for the little Rebel. The 50mm should be arriving today, and it will give me two extra stops of range with the little built in flash--which I will rarely use, but when I need it, I need it.

    Nikon 70 200 VR the sharpest zoom lens I have ever owned and yes the VR does work 15th sec at 200mm with about a 75% sucsess rate.

    A 200 mm Pentax from Clocktower Cameras in Brighton-just 70 notes and nice and compact. has it's own built in lens hood as well, which is one less thing for me to lose....

    You'll love the Canon 50mm 1.8. Although its build is a bit low and plasticky, it's sharper and focuses faster than most of Canon's more expensive zooms. I love my "nifty fifty"!

    Always more specific

    These polls seem to always get more and more specific... "What fixed focal length, 120mm image circle, non-Tessar design lens"...

    Anyway, last SLR lens purchase would have to be a 40mm Distagon for Hasselblad. Ah ha! See, no mention of 35mm in THIS poll...

    Last 35mm lens purchase was a 50mm Noctilux (not SLR, sorry) which turned out to be a lemon - so I can tell you where NOT to buy used Leica gear in Milan.
    If you tone it down alot, it almost becomes bearable.
