There is a big difference between "best L" and "if you could only have 1 L." For the first version, it's the 400 2.8L or possibly the 200 1.8L. For the second, It would be my 70-200 2.8L IS.

Another vote for the 70-200/2.8 IS. Principally because of the joy of using it.

85L's wide-open shots are dreamy to look at, but it's a pig to use at less than F/2.8 (or, more likely, I can't use it very well at that aperture). 24-70L is great too but a little short. If Canon made a 24-105 F/2.8 IS, I'd be in there like a shot.

Tough choice! My first inclination is to go with the 400 f/2.8 IS but what non-L's would I use with it? The 85 f/1.8 is a little work horse but there isn't anything else I like to cover the gap between 85 and 400. I guess I'd have to make do with the 70-200 f/2.8 IS. Can I have a TC?

It seems like 70-200L got most votes.
I just don't know why I am not using it much....
Ever since I used 135L, i tend to grab primes more.
I wish my kid plays some sports, so I can use the zoom more.
It's just a wonderful lens.
I may have to let it go, though, to finance for 35L
