Since I will be there for eternity, I need to get this right. 2 lenses, maybe 3. I am only bringing a 5D MkII and no backup. Here is what I have. . .

17-40
200mm 2.8
70-200 f4L
35mm 1.4
100mm Zeiss
21mm Zeiss
24-105

Can also rent, since I doubt lensrentals or borrowlenses will come after me if I don't return them. Besides, I'm already in hell, what else can they do to me?

I am thinking 24-105 for walkaround and 35mm for low light. But then I don't have the long end covered.

Decisions.

Rent the 800mm from Lensrentals. Like you say, what are they gonna do? Plus, I hear Hell is a big place. Might be something neat far away. Better get a 2x converter too.

How mobile are you looking to be? Also you might need something to protect them from the harsh conditions of Hell. Maybe a Pelican? Underwater housing maybe?
Can't say I have heard from a lot of photographers that have gone there.

Both lensrentals and borrowlenses have shops there for your convenience.

I'm not sure you'll do too much walk around there, but some alienbee's and some flashes would be helpful since is so dark in there.

The mods should chime in on this one.. they must have been there too. I often hear them referred to as: the moderators from...

Oh, and BTW, I have a list of people I'd like you to photograph while you are there!

Do polarizing filters remove the haze caused by brimstone?

Well I hear it's a hot place so I think the white lens control heat better. I knew canon was thinking about the future
