    Screw "what lenses"... I'd want a way off the island so I could sell some of the damn pictures!

    Having said that, if I could ONLY have 3 lenses I'd have a 24mm f/2.8 Nikkor, a 55mm f/3.5 Micro-Nikkor, and an 85mm f/1.8 Nikkor. I could live without my favorite zooms in that situation...

    Some people are like Slinkies. They're really good for nothing, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

    It would have to be 50 mm 1.4, 28 mm 2.8 and 85 mm 1.4 for my Contax SLR. Depending on the size of the island, nothing bigger would be needed, I don't think...

    For 35mm three manual focus primes. 24mm F2.8, 50mm F3.5Macro, 100mm F2.8.
    I own and use these three focal lenghts the most.
    They work well for me.

    A macro lens is a must plus a wide angle and a short tele. Of course you could opt for a long tele. if you want a shot of the ship on the horizon that should have picked you up.
    I'm into painting with light - NOT painting by numbers!

    For 35mm only... 35mm Nikor, 105mm Nikor, 50mm Jupiter8. The Nikors because they are sharp, the Jupiter 'cause it's not.

    Various formats... 105mm Nikor (35mm), 135 Tessar (3x4), 150mm fujiW (4x5).

    First, if I were stranded on a dessert island, I'd definitely want strawberries & chocolate and perhaps a bit of caramel!

    On the desert island, I'd also want an unlimited supply of chemicals and various papers (not to mention some heavy-duty de-salination eqipment). Ok, now that we have basics taken care of...

    I'd bring my 28-105, I'd want one of those way cool fish-eye lenses (24mm), and a 100-300.

    Please tell me there are no snakes on this blasted island (if they eat my chocolate, they're history)
