1) 24-70mm f/2.8L II -- tack sharp, rivals primes, also good in low light with high iso 5D Mark III
2) 135mm f/2.0L -- great bokeh, fast, light
3) 85mm f/1.8 -- cheap, light, fast, unobtrusive, decent lens
3) good tripod and ballhead


+1 1&2 are two of Canons best lenses

You could also substitute the 50 1.4 for the 85 1.8 if you wanted a wider low light lens.
