Hi all...

Well... as I have been using a 7D, I'll list my ideal 5 for that (I think APS-C vs FF body HAS to be stipulated, otherwise lens choice doesn't sit within 100% context!)

1) Sigma 8-16mm - must have great, sharp, contrasty IQ & an accurate AF copy too.
  (I have a good, sharp copy of the Sigma 10-20mm, which has minor AF issues - but it's not a practical problem how I use it)  8)

2) Canon 15-85mm - I have this lens, love it as my walk around... great range, v good IQ all round  :)

3) Canon 100mm L IS USM macro
  (I have the Canon 100mm non-L USM macro, which for all intents and purposes is 99% as good for macro.. but does lack the weather sealing and Hybrid IS- mostly for handhelds non 1:1 shots)   ::)

4) the yet to be released (maybe not even designed... CR2?) Canon 50mm f/1.4mm USM IS
  (I had two copies of the 50mm f/1.8, didn't like it's AF nor bokeh, and not quite good enough IQ wide open). There are aspects of the current Canon 50mm f/1.4 and Canon 50mm f/1.2 L that I don't like....  >:(

5) Canon 200-400mm 1.4x L (for my love of wildlife, especially birds - yes BIF too)  ;)
  (I have the 70-300mm L - terrific IQ at any setting- and if I got the 200-400mm 1.4x would desparately miss the portability of the awesome 70-300mm L... so it would be a 'toss up', but one can't argue with a lens that has 200-560mm range in an L!) 

Yes, I'd probably like a 200mm f/2 IS, or a 17mm T/S lens as an 'extra' - but the above 5 lenses are what I would expect to use lots (as I do all my current lenses).  So I feel that with what I currently have, I'm actually not too far off what would be my 'ideal' 5 lenses anyway, actually. And that's a good thing!  8)

Regards

Paul
I'm not a brand-fanatic. What I do appreciate is using my 7D and 350D cameras along with a host of lenses & many accessories to capture quality photos, and share with friends.

So you have 3 Canon, 1 Olympus and 1 Nikkon lens. Interesting combination!
I guess that the 600mm on a D800 body or a crop one, would kill...

I'm pretty happy with my 4 lenses on a 5D II.

Have.
Samyang 14 F2.8
Zeiss 21 F2.8
Sigma 50 F1.4
Canon 100-400L

Would add.
Canon 24-70L II(I think)

Thoughts on them.  I don't think I'd even care to swap the Samyang 14 for the Canon 14 if someone wanted to.  Loving the thing and I've used a Canon 14L II before.  The Zeiss 21 is really just sick and not going anywhere.  I would likely swap out the Sigma 50 for the Zeiss 50 F2.  I suppose swapping out the 100-400 for the 200-400L would make sense too.  Would then need some mid-range zoom and the 24-70L II would work great.  Yeah that'd be a damn happy full frame line-up.
