Thank's for replay. I think always at primes, so my options, I think:
for wide: 24L or 35L; for normal 50L (24-70L); for tele/portrait 135L (70-200L).
I read all the good news for the 135, I wonder if the 50 f/1.2 worth the money or is better 50 f/1.4?
The "Holy Prime Trinity" in Canon for Portraits would be the 35L, 50L and 85L (You should definitely check this lens out if you're a portrait photographer, its got an amazing rendition to its images that no other 85mm lens can really match)
For other options, instead of the 50L consider the Sigma 50mm f/1.4 EX DG HSM, They have occasional problems with focus accuracy, but the IQ on a good copy is easily as good as the 50L at a fraction of the cost, Keep in mind the 50L has its own little "quirks" when it comes to focusing (Namely focus shift, ie, if you stop the lens down a little it shifts the point of focus and theres NO way to correct it)
The 135L is awesome too, and considered by many to be the BEST Canon L lens...and the new 70-200 f/2.8L IS II makes prime-lovers grit their teeth and admit its a prime-quality zoom in every regard
Depending on how you work, I'd say its a tossup between primes and zooms, Canon has amazing lenses in both categories, but coming from Nikon I think you'd be most impressed by the L-series primes, Nikon really lacks equals for them...
