24-105L is my vote.

Cheers, Steve

The 85L is amazing on a 5D2. :)

It's all personal choice.

For me, I'm happy with my lens setup. The only thing missing for me is a 200L or 300L

i'll keep it simple, anything with an "L" in the description goes nicely with that body

I'll see your "L" and raise you to "ZE"

Seriously, every Zeiss lens I've put on my 5D2 has pleased me quite a lot. If there was a must have, it would be ...
for landscapes TS-E 17/4L or ZE 21/2.8
for walkabout or street ZE 25/2 or ZE 35/1.4
for flowers or people ZE 50/2 MP

I tend to transition to using my 1D4 at about 50 mm.


Several cameras and more glass than I will admit to.

It really depends what you shoot. I love my 16-35L II and the 85L II.

I was looking at the forums before buying 24-105 f4 L IS USM and comparing this lens with 24-70 F2.8 and decided 24-105. At the end of the day, I am very happy with it and if you buy, you will love it. Better zoom range (105mm) than 70mm.

so 105: better zoom range
70: better in low rights

right?

I'd say...no. The 24-70 is more for better bokeh. I'd give the advantage in low light to the f4 just due to IS

I just sold a lens and a 40D and am this close to picking up a 5D II and I just know that I will be struggling between a 70-200L and 135L.

24-70 is a must have on 5DMkII due to versatility.
70-200L 2.8IS II and 85L on 5DMkII are killer combo...
