Canon 24 1.4
Sigma 35 1.4
Canon 24-70 2.8 II
Canon 135 f/2
Canon 200-400 f/4 IS 1.4ext (yeah, Mads, as if that's gonna happen...)

I mean... I have plenty of glass to keep me occupied already, so this is more like a "filling some gaps and adding some extreme luxuries" thing.
2 x 5DIII and various Canon and Sigma lenses + a small Fuji X lineup of stuff.

1. Canon EF 14mm f2.8
2. Canon EF 35mm f1.4
3. Canon EF 50mm f1.2
4. Canon EF 85mm f1.2 II
5. Canon EF 70-200mm f2.8L IS II

But if we can go with rumors, I'd take the 14-24 over #1. And any version +1 to what's on the list.
5DIII 8-200mm minus 35mm in there.

5 lenses I do have:

TS-E 17mm L
TS-E 24mm L II
EF35mm 1.4L
EF135mm 2.0L
EF300mm F4L  (non-IS)

Alternatively for traveling purposes I would replace the 135 and the 300 with 70-200 IS (either f/4L for maximum portability or 2.8L II for lower light use or background separation).

All Canon:

70-200mm f/2.8 L IS II USM  <- Just got it last week
50mm f/1.2 L  <-Next one to buy after paying off one above
16-35mm f/2.8 L <- for now living with the 17-40mmL as that I got a great deal on it used
14mm L  (someday)
24-70mm f2.8L USM II

That being said...where I have the 14mm, I might have to say I would alternate that one with maybe the 85mm L f/1.2 and the 100mm L macro.....I can't really decide on that spot...but one of those would round out my top 5 I'd like to get.

I'm making my way down the list.
For now, I have the 85mm f/1.8, and honestly, that is a fun lens, great bang for the buck, so the 85mm 1.2 is likely to be lower on the list of what I'd want to get to finish out my collection.

That is all realistic. If going for ANY lens price no option, I'd like to have a 600mm or 800mm lens top of the line Canon has, but I think I'll save to buy a house first.
