Prime set
17mm TSE - 2000?
35mm - 1000?
85mm - 1800
135 mm - 900
MP65E - 1000?

Sell 70-200 F4 and get a duplicate 70-200 F2.8 and duplicate 24-70 if you are doing professional photography.

You really don't need any more gear.
If you have a business and want to spend the money to avoid paying tax on it give it away to a charity.
If this is your personal money and you want to spend it buy your partner something that s/he would like.
Happy Christmas

Exactly.

However if you tell us what do you shoot (website/port) that might help a bit ...

On the other hand, NO offense, but
-if you are a photographer and you know what you are doing/shooting than why would you ask others to tell you what you should do? I could understand your question in a specific situation/subject but in general... (??)
 -if you are a gear collector, than you can pick anything (blindfolded) from bh, adorama or your fav store's menu and will be happy with the new toy even if you use it once a year.

When you have bought the TS-E 24mm L II - which I think you should - but before you get broke on other Canon gear,
You should get a Lumix DMC FT4.
This is a real pocket-camera - no protruding lens or never-ready-lens-cap; you forget it's in your pocket.
But you can skin-dive to twelve meters if you want.
I have used my FT1 for nearly four years and thousands of shots. It has survived bumps and scratches.
Hand-held film and stills running/jogging, x/c ski and bike racing, mountain hiking, kayak paddling,
swimming and diving with grandchildren. UV filming trout on the hook. You will certainly find out more ways.

Donate some of your money for people with hard lifes. Donate 35mm f/2 (old version) to me for xmas too!  8)
With the rest of the money get a TS lens or prime.

seriously put the violin away I think everyone here is a bit over the continuous begging  ::)

The money is left on my bank account!
Every new year I try to start with my salary for december.
at the end of the year, after each bill is payed, enough money beside for my retirement (oh god, I am mid 30) I buy some nice things only for myself... I am going to spend the money on things I really don't need but would be nice to have :-)

I shot everything. nothing special. I like the the technical stuff :-) I can need everything :-)
I am also not a professional. just a amateur with a lot of weight on my back when travelling :-)

Thanks to all for your advices!
I think I am going to order a 400 2.8 II (ok, I have to add some more money) or 85mm 1.2 and save the rest for the next 1D series body...
Willl think about it on my free days.

happy x-mas!

With all that equipment in the bag already, I´d buy plane tickets to an exotic place, and photograph. That and the Sigma 35mm 1.4.

You seem to be missing:

1. High capacity high speed memory cards
2. Filters (Polarizer, ND's, Gradient, etc.)

1) I use 1DX as my main cameras. they are all full equiped with sandisk 32gb 90mb/s.

2)I got everything from filters and so on.

I have almost $9000 left for spending on some canon gear :-)

what would you suggest to buy?

I have got:
2 x 1DX
5DMKII
60D
24-70 L 2.8 II
70-200 L 2.8 II IS
24-105 L 4.0 IS
70-200 L 4.0 IS
17-40 L 4.0
100 2.8 L Macro

some speedlites and some other small things.

I would first sell these:

5DMKII
60D
24-105 L 4.0 IS
70-200 L 4.0 IS

and sell this when the IS version comes out (and buy the IS version as a replacement):

24-70 L 2.8 II

Then I would buy some new glass like the 300 2.8 or maybe something even longer depending on how much money you have left.
1D X + backup + different L lenses etc.
