For my style of shooting, I would probably go with 35L, 85L or Sigma 85, and 135L.

For a full frame camera and on a budget, you can see what I use in my signature.

:D With 60D ? => budget Samyang 14F2.8 + Simga 30F1.4 + Sigma 85F1.4 or Canon 135L2.0

If you wan't 30 years gears keeping and you will change one day the 60D for a 1DMKIV or 5DMKII or both :lol: ..
without any doubt => 17TSE or 24L1.4II, 85L1.2II, 200L2.0

So be patient :lol:, .... it seems 5DMKIII won't be on the market before 2012 ;)... 1DsMKIV should be announced end of this year.

300mm f2.8, 500mm f4 and 180mm f3.5 macro.
Quality and I find them a good mix for wildlife.

Well I use the most my 24L II, 85L II and 135L ... all three just shock and awe me every time I snap that first picture with them.

I'm a jack of all trades actually. Keep in mind I typically stick to the 70-200L II at 200mm when doing any portraits with external lighting.

When I am not using the external lighting I use the primes for obvious reasons.

The 24L II because of its absolutely gorgeous color rendition and simi wide view.

The 85L II for its legendary Bokah and color rendition.

The 135L for its beautiful bokah and very flattering lens compression

have you tried the 35L? how come you chose the 24L over the 35L?
