If somebody asked me what lens I would choose if I could only have one, in the past I might have come up with a fixed length prime. Right now its a (light) 10X zoom, equivalent to a 28-300mm in 35mm terms. Not particularly sexy and these days it seems, not particularly fashionable, but one that gives me the widest possible choice to create the images I 'see'. And for me thats the point of a lens (or lenses), a tool (or set of tools) to give ME the choice and not dictate what I can and can't photograph. Others of course may feel differently.
