Lens use on my D7100 for 15k shots

Most to least:
Nikkor AF-S DX 18-200 f/3.5-5.6 VR II Outdoor daytime events 6k
Tamron SP 17-50mm F/2.8 Di II XR VC LD Aspherical IF Lowlight/indoor events 5k
Nikkor AF-S 85 f/1.8G Landscape/outdoor portraits/low light 2k
Nikkor AF-S DX 35 f/1.8G Street/landscape indoor lowlight 1.4k
Nikkor AF-S 50 f/1.4G .7k
Tamron SP 10-24MM F/3.5-4.5 Di II LD Aspherical IF Street/architecture 0.029k (usually on D5100 as second body)
(All counts just for D7100)

The 18-200 has been a busy lens this Summer, but the 17-50 will catch up before December, I think. The sharpness of the 17-50 over the 18-200 as well as the low light performance make this likely.

The 85 is my favorite prime for its sharpness, the 50 least because of focus hunting in low light. The 35 also ends up on the D5100 second body as needed. I also have a 20yo Quantaray 70-300 f/3.5-5.6 macro, but it is no longer kept in my bag, and only used if nothing else will do.
