As I get older I find that I am less interested in acquiring new stuff than ever before. In fact my wife's recent bout with breast cancer and being a 14 year cancer survivor has really served to remind me that the things that bring me greatest joy aren't the things that I own but the experiences I have had with those I love. With that in mind I was looking at my pile of lenses and realized that while I do appreciate them as objects the vast majority get used very little and if I am perfectly honest with myself I have to admit that I could have only one or two lenses (maybe three) and be just as happy as I am with fifteen or twenty lenses. In fact, I would probably be happier because it would be less to think about. So if I had to pick one or two lenses what would I pick? Well, with the lenses I have: Minolta MC 50/1.7, 50/1.4, 100/2.5, 135/2.8, MD 35-70, 70-210, 35-105 and 24/2.8 Nikon AiS 28/2 Super Takumar 35/3.5 Konica 40/1.8 Olympus OM 28/3.5, 50/1.8, 50/1.4, 100/2.8 Vivitar (Komine) 28/2 close focus, 70-210 When it comes to choosing which lens, I could be happy with any number of them as I am not terribly picky. They all have something to recommend them or I wouldn't have bought them in the first place. So which would you choose? I know what I would pick (probably).
