Although I have no idea what you shoot, and therefore have no understanding of what your needs are in this regard, I won't let that little detail stop me from recommending a couple of lenses I feel should be in everyone's kit: EF16-35 f/4L and the EF70-300 f4-5.6L
If I'm traveling and need the broadest range in the fewest lenses, i grab these two. the gap in the middle is mostly unnoticable, at least to me.
Yep, me too. However, I gotta say that my bag usually carries these lenses...
16-35L (f/2.8 v I)
(These two lenses share the same 77mm filter size which is handy.)
15mm FishEye f/2.8
I only throw in the 70-300L and the 28/f/1.8 when I know I'll use them. And the 24-105L and 16-35L get 90% use most of the time. I also own the 24-70 f/2.8L (II) and it receives less use than I expected. It's a great lens. If I am shooting something important like an indoor ceremony or something, I will use the 24-70-II and the 70-200-II. But I would sell the 24-70-II hands down before I ever considered selling the 70-200-II. Big time.
