70-200/f4L b/c of it's versatility and quality. Can take portraits with good DOF and candids with the zoom. I will admit though that I miss my 28-135 IS and will purchase another someday.

I have a Tamron 28-70 f/2.8 Di, a Canon 100mm f/2.8 Macro, a Canon 70-200 f/2.8 L IS, and a Canon 400mm f/5.6 L lens.
Ohenry, why did you go for the 400 5.6L and not for the 300 F4 (with or without IS) and a 1.4x extender? I've read a lot of discussion on that subject, but am very curious why you chose the 400. All I need to fill out my lens lineup is something to get me to 400mm.

Oh, and to answer the question on my favorite lens:

The 17-40 because it takes wonderful landscapes, is sharp and light to carry around.
The 24-70 because it is so versatile, a great range in focal lenghts and it is a constant F 2.8. (Love that!)
The 70-200 F.28 IS, cause it is a great zoom that has resulted in some excellent pictures for me. The IS is absolutely great.
The 50mm F1.8 'amazing plastic'. Its tack sharp, small and pretty fast at F1.8. I don't use it much, but when I do it works out wonderfully.
