    I use them all, but I particularly like the 200mm Zuiko and the Super-Multi-Coated Takumar 200mm f/4

    Canon 100/2 USM, hands down.

    My minolta 135/2.8 gets some use, but generally if I need the reach I'm using an autofocus system.

    For some reason, I never seem to "stop" anywhere between 105mm and 300mm. Had a 200mm, but never really used it. Have zooms that cover 75-150 and 80-200, but never seem to use them much. Obviously, YMMV.

    I have a 135mm F1.8 Zeiss for my digital Sony and like it the best. I also use the 85mm Zeiss a fair bit.

    This is precisely what I use. I have a 100mm f/4 Macro on another body that doesn't ever see action at the same time, so any conflict is minimal or non-existent.

    My most used medium telephoto lens is the Canon FD 85mm f1.2L because I'm primarily a portrait photographer, I bought new about twenty three years ago and paid an arm and a leg for it at the time but never regretted it, but IMO the most generally useful medium telephoto prime lens is somewhere around 100mm which gives you twice the magnification of the 50mm lens and is still fairly small and easy to handle and is good for portraits as well as general outdoor photography.
