Congratulations, great deal and good choices!

I have the 16-35, but I don´t use it much. I don´t like the wide angel distortion you get beyond 24mm. Landscapes are OK, but people look terrible. I have also sold my 50L, because I am using the 35/1.4 (Sigma) and 85L instead. So from my perspective, you made good choices.

Call your credit card company, and get as many as you can get flip them and make some coin.  I'd take an 85mm if you'd do that.
No brainer.
This.  Some (all?) of these prices are way below the usual used prices.  If possible, buy everything and flip what you don't want.   You have a possibility here to end up with both a few nice lenses and more money than you started with.
8) Absolutely don't miss this opportunity.
Borrow money if you have to and buy the lot. See what you like and re-sell the surplus.
You'll make a tidy profit.

Ohh yeah it is from canon and legit. Not from a offsite. They screwed up a repair 4 times over and ruined a few small jobs and an event.

ah i see. what luck! though it sounds like you had to earn it with some grief.

sry for being such a downer earlier...i'd rather play devil's advocate to help someone avoid getting screwed though. there has always been so much scam in the photo equipment business that when it sounds too good to be true then it most certainly is.

shame you couldn't pull the trigger on everything though. at those prices you could have sold a few of the peices and probably gotten what you wanted for essentially free.
