Excluding BDAG, what would you consider the best Greek lexicon?

I like "The Complete Word Study Dictionary" by Spiros Zodhiates

For classical studies: Liddel and Scott

New Testament studies: Louw and Nida

LXX studies: Lust

For me, Lowe and Nida, hands down.  I find it easy to use, concise definitions, and the way they break down definitions into the semantic range of a word really works for me.  As a lexicon (not an encyclopedia) I think it is the best.  I would prefer it to BDAG, though I always reference both.  "If I could only have one..."

DBL Greek -- > Dictionary of Biblical Languages with Semantic Domains (organise meanings according to Louw-Nida domains). You can use Outline Formatting visual filter - if you have Logos 6 Bronze package or Feature Crossgrade, or higher - to vertically align the meanings for better clarity.

This is a great feature

Try it with BDAG and you’ll be amazed even more!
