    Well I normally only carry 2 Pentax lenses a 50mm and a 28mm for my camera, I do use a a Series 1 f2.8 Vivitar 70-210mm for concerts etc

    But by choice the third lens I would include would be a Tamron SP 19mm, mine went into a canal 17 yeras ago and although repaired, it flared afterwards.

    If I could afford it better still a 21mm Leitz lens for my M3. I was loaned one for a couple of months and the differance in quality - lack of distortion compared to a similar lens for an SLR is - is incredible. But as all my serious work is now shot on 5x4 I use the equivalent focal lenght a 65mm Schnieder when I need to.

    I stand corrected - quite right Robert. More coverage - but slower!

    A pair of lenses with a woman wearing them(who wants to be alone on an island for years?).That being said I'll take any three Sigma EX zoom lenses covering all the focal lengths I need-the bigger question is where and how to develop and store negatives.

    If you were stranded on a dessert island with your camera, unlimited film and a darkroom that could do both color and B&W, what three lenses would you absolutely want with you?

    The only "must have" lenses for good photography are "your eyes".
    'That' in combination with all your knowledge, your emotions and your courage will make of you a photographer with vision!

    I have only one answer for any "If you were stranded on a desert island" question.

    I only have 3 lenses for my Nikon now. All zooms and the three offer a huge range - AF-S 17-35mm f2.8D, AF-S 28-70mm f2.8D and AF-S 80-200mm f2.8D. I also just bought the new TC-20E II AF-S teleconverter. This combination gives me me a range from 17mm to 400mm in 4 lenses.

    It would depend on the camera I have with me. If I had a Leica rangefinder, I would want the 21/4 Voigtlander, 35/2 Summicron and 50/2 Summicron. If I had a Canon EOS SLR, I would want my 20-35/3.5-4.5, 50/1.8 and 70-200/2.8 (hopefully with Canon's 1.4x and 2x extenders). Can I have all of it? With my medium format equipment, too? Please?

    What I have now.

    Sigma 14mm for the sunrises/sunsets
    Canon 24-70L for plantlife and Island critters.
    Canon 100-400L for Birding and spotting far off ships.

    Do we get rum on this island?

    I'd get a normal lens (50/1.4 for 35mm), a micro lens (105mm 1:1 if possible)
    and a wide angle (28 mm/2.8)

    Even though good quality zooms 28-70 and 70-210 would give me more options... those and the micro lens
