@ DC - Me too!!! Just the one!!!! A 60mm macro/2.8, and it's wonderful. But lonely...

Well by that logic 2to the 43112609th-1 is the best prime I know

When I had my 7D I loved my Sigma 30mm prime, it was beautiful.

Right now, the 100mm is wonderful but I relish the day I can afford to get myself the 85mm 1.2

Somebody save me from math!!!

Well the largest prime is nearly 13 million digits long... so I wont post it here and annoy SC.
It is: 2 to the power of 43,112,609 minus 1.
Good luck with your math(s) exam

I'm split between the Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM and the Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 USM Macro. Probably because they are the only two I own.

... I was about to say "Man, that's such a weird question for a photography forum, but my favourite prime number is 31, because when it's reversed it's 13, which is also a prime, and 13/31 are the first non-palendromic primes."

On the other hand, it's my 50m 1.4.
I lurve it!

Edit: Hah! I have three shots on that page :-)

Sheldon: 73, is the 21st prime number, it's mirror 37 is the 12th and it's mirror 21 is the product of multiplying, hang on to your hats, 7 and 3. Did I lie?
Leonard: We get it! 73 is the... Chuck Norris of numbers!
Sheldon: Chuck Norris wishes! In binary, 73 is a palindrome, 1001001, which backwards is 1001001, exactly the same. All Chuck Norris gets you backwards is Sirron Kcuhc.

Canon 400mm f/5.6L USM. Not fast glass, but very sharp images and the lens snaps to focus very quickly. Size is small enough to go with me on all hikes, which is where the wildlife is.

My fave is the only one I have, the 50mm 1.8. I love it for low light and bokeh.

Canon 85mm f1.2L II. Rented it and I want it :P Probably won't get it for a long, long, long time!!
04/15/2011 08:12:29 PM · #50
Any of the Pentax FA limiteds.

The 31mm f1.8 limited for pure IQ but I prefer the focal length of the 77mm f1.8 in most situations.
