    With the leica it depends on my immediate mood. Some times I'm in a 15mm or 35mm or 50mm mood or even sometimes the 90mm. Usually only one lens gets taken on short travels. It's 50/50 between the Noctilux and the 351.4 asph for most use but lately I really like the choice of different looks with the Noct esp wide open or sharp closed down. I also use the 80mm 2.8 on the linhof Tech V 2x3 but really like the 180mm f5.5 better if I had to choose only one. Someday I'll get a wide angle for it.

    Favorite lens? Depends entirely upon what I happen to be shooting. That said, with the Nikons, favorites would be my 24mm f/2, 35mm f/1.4, 85mm f1.4 and my trusty old 80-200mm f/4. For the "Blads," the 50mm F/4, 100mm f3.5, and the 180mm f/4. For the Leicas, the Summilux f1.4 Asph is a permanent fixture on one of my M6s.

    I assume voting closed due to thread age. In 35mm I prefer the 35/40 range and of the 2 like the 400mm better. For my 645, I like the 50mm that equates to I think between the 35 and 40 range. Nothing really wrong with the 50mm or 75mm (645) lenses that are considered the normal lengths for each but I just do not see that narrowly and tend to have to move further back to about the same inclusion as I'd find acceptable with the 40mm.

    I usually use 45 - 47 on my rangefinders.
