I have two major lens that I use:
1) Sigma 18-250mm 3.5 for general purpose since it is extra wide and has a lot of zoom. I use it for food, landscape, product, and whatever else the job requires. It is a very high quality lens and has served me well.
2) Sigma 85mm 1.4 Art lens for portraits. This lens is super rare and one of the most amazing pieces of glass I have ever had the pleasure of using. It is what I use mostly for portraits and headshots but it can also surprise when shooting other subject matter.
