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.

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.
