My 5d loves its 24-70, and 70-200/f4IS. It also likes knowing that the 17-40 is close by, just in case 24mm is not wide enough.
I always want C&C on my shots.

My two lens combo is either the 35L & 85L or the 24-70L & 70-200L.
For some reason I never mix and match, if I'm only taking two lenses with me it's one setup or the other.

The 35L & 85L combo looks promising: Great IQ and good range. Same with the 35L & 135L combo.

For walkabouts n street photography, i take the17-40 & 135L
Me too! In my case, I substitute the 16-35L-II for the 17-40L. Same difference.

for walkaround i use 16-35L II, 24-70L and 70-200L f4 IS. so it depends on where i'm walking around if i have to choose two.
if i have to choose one it's the one in the middle .
You like the 24-70L? No kidding Good to see ya again Ed! I like the 16-35L-II + 70-200/f4-IS combo: Very light and covers a good range!

I walk around mostly with my brick 24-70 2.8 IS. In Manhattan I see so many people walking around with their prime lenses, or the point and shoots, but I like to be able to zoom into a normal focal lenght and still have a wide angle. Specially when there are so many people walking around and such.

A good deal of the time I put the 35L on one 5D and the 85L on the other and am good to go.

It was just yesterday that I realized how much I like the 17-40. We had a house full of family gathered together (old aunts and uncles, cousins and kids). The 17-40 really worked like a charm on my 1D MK III with the crowd. And later we got a group picture or 7 out by the pool.

Since I got them 9 months ago my two favorites have been 35L and 135L. Works wonderfully for everything I like to shoot, especially on two 5Ds. Last week I got 50L and love it, and it'll be great when I only bring one lens, but for "two lens occasions" I think I'll still prefer 35 and 135L most of the time. (Although 24 and 50mm is very useful sometimes too.)

17-40 and 24-105! Those two lenses cover 98% of my needs, unless I want to shoot wildlife - then it's the 100-400 and the 500.

I just moved up to a FF Body and can't believe how awesome the 24-105 f/4L IS is. I loved it on my 40D and never thought it could be better, boy was I wrong.

I would go with 24-70L and 135L (if you dont want the attention a white lens would get you, if you dont mind then 70-200 F2.8)
This, quite often.
