I am getting the 5D Mark III with the 70-105mm kit, I have the 100-400mm at the moment. I like landscape, family and action/fast moving shots. I am looking at getting the 70-200mm L f2.8 or the 16-35mm f2.8 L II as well..

What would be your next lens out of those two.

OR

My additional "want" list also contains the following:

100mm f/2.8 L Macro IS USM
24-70mm f/2.8 L II USM
24mm f/1.4 L II USM
85mm f/1.2 L II
135mm f/2 L USM

Since you already have a telephoto, I'd go for the 16-35 or something else wide.

Yeah thats what I was thinking, then maybe the Macro before getting the telephoto and moving onto the primes..

Get a UWA.skip the 16-35 and get a 17-40L. With the money you save buy a 50 1.4 and a flash
