24-70L F4 IS or 16-35L F2.8 II

Both are sharp, well built and offer versatility that is appropriate in both photography and videography. The IS in the new 24-70 is brilliant and the 16 - 35 makes your photos look so much more intimate than a tele-photo.

Maybe the recent Canon 35mm f2 IS -- for FF and standard sensors.

+1

And probably the 17-55/2,8 in the APS-C case.

APS-C  28mm 1.8 IS

FF 40mm 1.8 IS

+1 but I'd welcome a 22mm instead of a 28mm and a 35mm instead of a 40mm.  A zoom like the new Sigma 16-35mm F1.8 is also good for APS-C though it's bigger than what I desire.

Canon 100-400 F4-5.6 IS L.  It's not the sharpest lens in the inventory but for what I do, nature and wildlife photography, it is the most versatile.  Nothing else comes close.

Crop - 17-55 2.8 IS
FF - dunno, never owned one.  Probably the 24-105L for being a good walk around lens.
What I do today is important because I am exchanging a day of my life for it.

If I could have one lens, it would be the 17mm f/4 tilt-shift beast. Full-frame sensor or crop, that sh¡t drips with potential.
Kodak A-1 Autographic, Pentax K1000, Canon EOS ELAN 7E, Mamiya 645AFD, Samsung Pro815, Canon XT, T2i, T3i, G11, SX40, Nikon D7000, Pentax K5IIs, Phase One DF+, P30+ and P45+ digital backs, Nikon D800....several systems worth of glass and lighting equipment. Regular renter of other gear

I think this is key.  The right tool for what you do as a photographer.  I am into wildlife as well.... and have to agree that the 100-400 is the lens I would choose.  :)
