17-40 L as a walk around
35 L
50 1.4 ( 50 L if you can find one)
85 L
135 L
300 2.8 I S L + 1.4x TC

Then, I would say you are all set for all situations except true Macro and t/s.

Then I would suggest the Sigma 150mm macro and Canon TS-E 45mm for landscape/architecture purposes.

I'm fairly happy with my current collection given the DSLR I own now, but given that this would be magic land an $$ is free...

I'd have a FF 1D body to pull these off....

16-35mm f2.8L (to replace the 10-22mm I have now.)
24-70mm f2.8L
70-200mm f2.8L (but money is free so add IS to it.)

[all of the above could happen on day...]

But the kicker lens would be the 300mm f2.8L throw in a 1.4x and I'm not sure you'd ever need another lens. At least for my tastes all the above lenses would be sharp and fast enough.


I kaNt sPeL...
