Any L lenses that you can't do without?

After the karate shoot I did last saturday, I am starting to think I really need the 70-200mm 2.8 IS II. There were 4 rings, and I couldn't get to all of them.
With that lens I could have done a much better job than my 85mm 1.8 did on the distant shots.

It is on my wish list, but not in my budget (yet).

For me its my 70-200. I have the f4 IS version and I use it for the majority of my pictures (with and without a Teleconverter)

I have the cheap 70-200 f4L and that is my most used lens,
\other than that I had a 24-105L that I THOUGHT could not live without but sold it, but since I got my little Tamron 28-75 f2.8 dont really miss it that much
But my 70-200 goes everywhere with me and cant wait to upgrade to a f2.8 IS

I am inclined to say a 70-200 because that's the only L that I currently own. I used some cheaper lenses in the 70-300 range that I didn't like, but I haven't tried any of the Sigma/Tamron 70-200's. I understand those are decent but still cheaper than the Canon 70-200 models.

For everything else I have the cheaper alternatives and have been happy with them... 50 1.4 instead of 50L... 100 macro instead of 100 L macro... Tamron 28-75 instead of Canon 24-70 or 28-70.

35L and 135L
I really love my new 70-300L but I would not give up the 135L for it or for anything in that focal range.

I've finally gotten my kit down to the very best for what I need and use.

I've weeded things down to the very best for the focal lengths that I shoot. I have no superfluous lenses now.

Because of that, I would say that all of my lenses I cannot do without.

it was my 500mm f4, but I would now go for the 300mm f2.8 with and without a 1.4 extender
