My lens collection was built around my portrait photography business so some of the lenses that I love are just not practical to take into the backcountry. For example my Canon 70-200 2.8 IS is not only 8"x3" but it weighs 52 oz! Not something I want to pack around for days, but the images it takes are amazing! Just this last year I picked up a Tokina 10-17 fisheye that I have really loved using in the backcountry. It is really fishy at 10 and not very fishy at all at 17. I love the effects I can get with this lens. It is my favorite backcountry lens right now. What's everyone else using?
