What is your favorite lens and why? What is your least favorite and why?

I just got a 55-250 from my dad for christmas which is cool. This lens is new to me so i need to get used to it. I love that it zooms in really closer compared to the 18-55 mm...that's probably not a great comparison anyways lol. I'm also looking into getting a lens hood and flash diffuser..any thoughts on those?

My favourite lens is my 50mm f/1.4.
I refuse to use variable aperture lenses. it's one of my weird issues.

I love my 50mm f1.8. I can really tell the difference between the pictures when I have it on as opposed to the 18-55mm.

How do you like your new lens? I've been looking at that one for my next one!

I still love my 28-75 2.8 Congrats on your new lens!!

I just have a little plastic diffuser but I never really use it, I just bounce the flash if I use it..

Thanks ladies! I haven't had much of a chance to use it as i've been busy but from the few pics i've taken i like it. I'm thinking of getting the canon 50mm f1.8...and thoughts on that? I'd like to get the f1.4 but it's too much right now, the other is only 89 right now!
