Nice, you have nice taste, and by the looks of it a nice shooting style :)

Zeiss 2/35 ZE (I own this one)
EF 16-35mm f2.8L ii
EF 70-200mm f2.8L is ii
EF 300mm f2.8L is ii
EF 50mm f1.2L

However I'd love the zeiss 2/100 macro if I could say 6.

If I need more than those, I'm kidding myself actually.

Lall the lenses are Canon, unless specified otherwise.

The basic 5, and couldn't, for some reason, expand on the number of lenses:
17mm f/4.0 TS-E, 24-70 f/2.8 II, 70-200 f/2.8 IS II, 85mm f/1.2 II, 90mm f/2.8 TS-E.

If anyone cares, the next 8 that would be on my list if I already had the above lenses, and if I had the funds (the 200-400, for one, is going to be pretty da%$ expensive): 100 f/2.8 IS macro or 180 f/3.5 Macro, 24 f/3.5 TS-E II, 35mm f/1.4, 200 f/2.0 IS, and the 200-400 f/4.0 IS, plus the light weight traveling 3 - the 40 f/2.8 pancake, the 24-70 f/4.0 IS and the 70-200 f/4.0 IS.

Last, what I actually have now: 8mm f/3.5 Belarus Peleng fisheye (this is a "cheapie"), 16-35 f/2.8 II, 24 f3.5 TS-E, 24-70 f/2.8, 50 f/2.5 macro, 85mm f/1.2 II, 90 f/2.8 TS-E, 150 f/2.8 Sigma Macro, 70-200 f2.8 IS II, 1.4 converter II. These may not all seem so glamorous, but they get the job done, and done well.

That about does it.

Regards,
David

3. 24-70mm f/2.8II
4. 70-200mm f/2.8IIis

14mm f/2.8
35mm f/1.4L II
135mm f/2.0L
300mm f/2.8L IS III
600mm f/4L IS III

For what I currently shoot:

Canon 24mm f/1.4L
Canon 35mm f/1.4L
Canon 85mm f/1.2L
Canon 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II


If I had more opportunity to shoot wildlife as well as what I currently shoot:
Canon 14mm 2.8L
Canon 35mm f/1.4L
Canon 85mm f/1.2L II
Canon 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II
Canon 600mm f/4L IS II

Although this would make the travel bag rather heavy...

Realistic wish list assuming I can keep my existing ones -

35 f/2 IS
Sigma 85
100 f/2.8L IS Macro
135 f/2L
70-200 f/2.8 IS II

That would be sweet.

canon 17mm TS
Canon 85mm F1.2L
Canon 50mm F1.2L
Canon MPE 65
Canon 200-400mm 1.4X

Not much on Zoom lenses... I like to shoot using primes.

Fun thing is that I'm planning my purchases for a 5 lenses rational kit for travelling as this is probably the max you can take in rough conditions and with "survival kit" also in the bag. Thus for general travel purpose, I'm leaning toward:

- 70-200 2.8 IS II
- 24-70 2.8
- 85L
- 35L
- 14L
