An UWA, because I like it for landscapes.
A walkaround Zeiss, because I like what it does to colours and contrast
A Fuji 23mm F2, because it's stuck on a pocket camera

Why are you concerned about colours and contrast when you post process the heck out of them anyways? :) BTW, I just picked up the Fuji. I can see why you like this baby.

Just picked up the Panasonic 14mm f/2.5 for M4/3 cameras.
Needed a cheap wide angle('ish) since I'm heading off on vacation soon and don't feel like dragging my 14-24 along for the ride.

I went through the entire Canon lens lineup before settling on 35L, 70-200L IS, 100L IS Macro and 6D body. I really love the wifi feature on the 6D.

I'll just stick to the most-used lenses... :)

Canon 16-35 f/4 IS - Full-frame replacement for my beloved Sigma 10-20. It's the sharpest of Canon's 16-35mm lenses, and because I mostly shoot landscapes with it I didn't need the f/2.8, or the added price, or weight. Being able to shoot sharp half-second exposures hand-held with the IS is pretty awesome too!

Canon 24-70 f/2.8 - Versatile walkaround when I don't feel like swapping lenses too often.

Canon 50mm f/1.4 - I didn't like the focal length on a crop body, but now that I've gone full-frame, it might be on my camera more often as a lightweight, discreet walkaround. If only Canon did something about the ridiculous build quality.

For a variety of reasons I just went through a huge gear purge.

For my canon system I'm down to just a 24-70 2.8 II

For film - an older summicron 50.

Depending on what I decide to do I may build up my canon system again or purge further and get a minimal/light M4/3 or fuji system

The 85mm 1.8 EF is one of the best lenses i own. Amazing lens for portraits.

I use my Contax T2's 38mm 3.8 zeiss sonnar lens for everything else. Probably one of the best lenses in the zeiss lineup.

I've got a Tokina 16-28mm f2.8 and a Nikkor 50mm f1.8D
I'm loving the Nikkor 50mm f1.8D! I'm a fan of the 'old' look it has and it auto-focuses really well on my Nikon D750 (only works if you lock the aperture at f22)
