Right now? Well its a toss up between the 24L and the 50L. I love my 24L just a little bit more.

it would be a very, very tough decision but i think for versatility it'd have to be the 24-105 on the 5d mk2, although i would struggle like hell to not pick the 35L its just sublime!!!

tough choice for me....

if i choose with my head probably the 24-105L

if i choose with my heart it would be the 50/1.8 - not because i like sticking canon's cheapest lens on a 5D2 but because i use it the most without a doubt & love the length on FF :)
