Good question, I use all mine pretty often, but if I had to pick one I would say the 50mm is least used.

But since you have 7000 lenses, how can you tell? :drool:

Since it's a fixed aperture (& slow one at that) preset lens (T mount) that is a bear to focus....It's difficult to see clearly in the VF unless it's an extremely bright day, thus I use it less since it's such a PITA

Good question. I would say 50mm f/1.8 get's rarely used since I got the 50mm f/1.4 for Christmas!

My 50 1.2 Ais is laying around somewhere lately. Whenever I go to full frame it will most likely get use more, or actually alot. Cropped sensors kind of ruin the field of view. Got it at a Pawn Shop for $50 a couple of years ago so it isnt hurting my feelings much that I dont use it.

Is there that big of a difference in these two lenses? I have been looking on Craiglist lately and a lot of people say the same thing. So would it be better to hold out for f/1.4?

In terms of image quality, no difference between the two when aperature is closed down. I think the 1.4 is a little sharper at very wide aperatures. The bokeh's better and the extra thin DOF on the 1.4 comes in handy sometimes too. I'd say it's worth it.

Among my newer AF lenses, the 28-135 is probably the least used.
Really don't know what my least used manual lens is. Probably the 50mm Jupiter 8 f2.0. Not very good compared to the other 50's I have.

Mmmm that's hard to tell, I use them all pretty equally.

50mm 1.4 I use the most though. Least... I can't tell because I don't want them to feel bad.
