I would have to ask...for shooting what? For walk around, 24-105. For a wide range of studio work, maybe 24-70. For a wide range of wildlife, 100-400.

For most L glass there is a 90-110% as good equivalent from a third party or Canon themselves. For example in the zoom arena there is the Sigma 70-200 2.8 OS, the Tamron 28-75 2.8, the Tamron 16-28 2.8, and the Sigma 300-800 f/5.6. Then for primes there is basically all Zeiss glass or the really good Sigma primes like the 50 1.4, 85 1.4, 300 2.8, 800 5.6, etc.

So if limited to only one L lens the only sensible choice would be one that no third party comes even close to replicating, and there is only one that I can think of...

200 f/2 IS

I think you are missing the point. If YOU had to chose only one what would it be? It is up to you to decide what is most important to YOU and therefore what YOU would chose.
