I am planning a move to FF in the next year so the first three represent lenses that will work for both (better for FF), and the last two replacements for my current EF-S lenses.

1. A 35mm lens- still undecided between the 1.4L, f/2IS and the new Sigma
2. 50mm 1.4- I owned the current Canon version and didn't like it, so sold it. I don't use this focal length much on the crop at the moment- so I'd buy it only when I get the FF or a mark ii comes out- whichever is earlier
3. 400mm f/2.8- this is the one unrealistic wish-I won't be able to afford this one for a loooong time, if ever

4. 24-70 f/4 or 24-105 whatever comes in the 5D3 kit at the time
5. An ultrawide- I don't like the 17-40, the 16-35 is too expensive and probably not worth it to me- so is cross that bridge when it comes I guess.
EOS 5DIII, EOS 5D | Rokinon 14mm f/2.8, TS-E 17mm f/4L, EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM, EF 35mm f/1.4L USM, EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM, EF 135mm f/2L USM, EF 70-200 f/2.8L IS II USM, 1.4x III, 2x III | 600-EX-RT x3 | EOS M + EF-M 22mm f/2

I´m happy with what I have today :
EF 16-35mm f2.8L II
EF 70-200mm f2.8L IS II
EF 600mm f/4L IS II
Don´t regret buying them for one second.

Getting this one next year to complete the focal Range
EF 24-70 f2.8 II

And I´m torn between

EF 100L IS 2.8 or EF 300L IS II 2.8 or EF 85L 1.2

as my 5th Lens

Excluding lenses which I already have

TS-E 17mm
EF 50mm f/1.0
EF 85mm f/1.2
EF 200mm f/2.0

And finally - an EF 800mm f/5.6, which I would trade-in for a couple of other lenses I'd like.

The one and only lens that I am lusting for right now doesn't even exist.

It is the 14-24L. Canon's equivalent to Nikon's 14-24 - one of the best lenses ever made.

A 16-35 III would also be ok, as long as it is razor sharp across the frame.
