My fisheye!!
Olympus Zuiko 35-100 f/2. So sharp you could cut yourself on the pixels.
Haha nice touch ! I like the sound of this one :-)
Nikkor 18-105 mm. Great lens for landscape, sharp in the f/16 to f/22 range.
sigma 28-70 DF EX 2.8
16-35 markII on a 5D canon, just in front of the 70-200 f/4 IS
My Nikon 50mm f/1.4 D and my Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8
My Canon 28-70L 2.8 is tough to beat....but I would have to say the 35-350L that I just sold was probably best all around lens I have ever owned.
If I had to narrow it down to one lens only, and could only carry one for the rest of my life, in my 4x5 cameras it would be my Rodenstock Grandagon 65mm (same as a 20mm on a digital full frame or 35mm camera).  My second choice would be my 90mm Sinaron-S which is so sharp it's scary.  On my Hasselblad it would be the 50mm which is the same as a 25 on most digital and 35mm cameras.  There isn't a sharper lens, or one with better contrast characteristics than these lenses.  German glass rocks!
I love my Canon 28-135, it's a great all round lens.

85 1.4g was a blissful piece of glass. Rented it from borrowlenses and cried sending it back.

In my bag? 85 1.8d  Nikon

My Canon EF 50mm f1.4 USM (also Canon EF 28-300mm f3.5-5.6L) and my Nikon AF-S 50mm f1.4G ;-)


Only a Few Days Left!
