In order, what are your top three lenses for your camera and why?

I just got a 18-55mm IS lens with my camera, so I'd really like to get another one, just to have more options. Any suggestions for a good second lens? I would love a marco lens, but I'm wondering if I should invest the money into another one first.

Canon 70-200, 2.8 Love the zoom and smoothness and sharpness

Tamron 28-75, 2.8 great for a walkabout lens

Canon 50mm 1.8 just a great lens to have

my faves are

Tamron 28-75 2.8
canon 50 1.8 (but I'd love to upgrade this to the 1.4 soon)

I don't have a third cus these are the only two I use (scratch that....I havent really taken the 28-75 off since I bought it in march except maybe once or twice)

my next lens will be a longer range probably....but I'm not sure

Tamron 28-75/2.8
Canon 50/1.4

These are the ONLY two lenses that I use! I use the Tamron for kids that are mobile and running around and the 50 1.4 for newborns, maternity and engagements.

Sigma 70-200mm 2.8, just got this lens but super duper loving it!

Tamron 28-75mm 2.8, this is my baby, take it everywhere and it was my main lens before the one above, still plan to use it a lot

Nikon 50mm 1.8, doesn't get used much, I am just not a prime lens girl

I love my Nikon 35-70mm, that is one my camera 99% of the time. My 2nd fav. lens is the Nikon 35mm 1.8. I would love to get the Nikon 70-200mm 2.8 to complete my collection, but that is out of my price range at the moment!

Thank you Misfitinmn for my signature!
