Just 3 Lenses, order of purchase:
EF 50 1.4 USM - Nice and light, used it exclusively for almost a year. Can take some great images, although I find the focus to be slow at times - especially at low light. I still like to put this lens on and just go out and get creative. This was my first lens I bought to replace the 18-55 Kit lens after getting bitten and infected by a 5DII and 24-105L combo for almost 3 weeks.
EF 70-200 f2.8 L IS - Got it used from a photographer with a bigger wallet, this lens is my favorite from fell to image quality.
EF-S 17-55 f2.8 IS - Needed a normal Zoom with IS and f2.8 mainly for video, and some wideangle shots. I wish it were built like an L lens. Image quality is pretty good, and IS saved quite a few lowlight shots so far. (the tamron 24-70 f2.8 IS was released a while after I bought this lens, I probably would have gone for the tamron instead, to be compatible with a future FF camera). Most used for "documentary" work like family events.
EF 24 f1.4 L - I saw some Images a photographer took with it on a 5DII in Berlin at an event, and it just blew me away. Kinda expensive for an engineering student.
Tokina 11-16 f2.8 - interesting focal range for crop cameras.
