    Easy, since I usually limit myself to 3 lenses : 24, 35 and 180. And after a while, I'd probably hope to find a 85mm lying around on that desert island.

    For my Nikon, the AF 35mm f/2 is by far my favorite one!

    And this was my first post on yet another online forum... which looks like a nice place by the way!

    First it would be the 50mm
    Then the 120
    And finally the 28.

    I have a few more lenses - but they usually just gather dust...

    My Nikon F80 has a Nikkor 28-105mm darn near glued on the front of it!

    I also have a 50mm f1.8 diamond cutter(!) and 70-300mm ED, neither of which I'd wish to set aside, but the 28-105mm takes at least 80% of my shots and wins hands-down. The 1:2 semi-macro facility doesn't hurt either...!

    Regards,

    Of the lenses currently in my kit, I would have to go with one of the following sets.

    Set one; 20mm f/2.8 AIS, 85mm f/1.4 AIS, and 180mm f/2.8 AIS ED.

    Set two; 20mm f/2.8 AIS, 35-70mm f/2.8 AF-D, and 180mm f/2.8 AIS ED.

    And a third set that includes one lens that I'm currently looking for, the 35mm f/1.4 AIS. This set would be for low light/available darkness.

    Set three; 35mm f/1.4 AIS, 50mm f/1.2 AI, and 85mm f/1.4 AIS

    I would want to have my FM3a with me because I use it more that I do my N90s.

    My choice for Nikon would be the 24mm f/2.8, the micro-Nikkor 55mm f/3.5
    and the 135mm f/2.8. For the Kiev-4a it would be the 35mm f/2.8, 53 f/1.8
    and 85mm f/2.0

    a 50mm f/1.8 FD for my canon (well, a f/1.4 would be better, but 1.8 is all I have) and an 80mm f/2.8 (but I'd kill for an F/2) for the 6x6. Yeah, I know, boring answer... but it's what I use

    I use a 24mm, 50mm, and 85mm. I also have a 15mm fisheye that comes out on occasion. I think I may be adding a 24-85mm zoom to cover this range and toss in the 50mm for the f/1.8. Don't really have much use for the longer lenses anymore.

    Since the Original Query Specified "Camera"...

    ...not "cameras"...

    For my 35mm I'd carry the 45, the 28, and be torn over the 90 versus the 21. Heck, it's a small island, the 21.

    If I needed to eat the lenses to survive, the 45 would be the last to go.

    I would probably take my 50mm 1.4, it's never let me down, it's tack sharp, and I could probably start a nice little campfire with it if need be. Otherwise I would take my 500mm lens and use it to scan the horizon for passing ships
