If I had that kind of money?  Maybe give it to Canon as seed money for a 70-200 f/2...  Otherwise spend it going places to use the cameras I have now!

I'd definitely start a company for photographic accessories if I had 100K. I have a lot of ideas, and I might eventually do that anyway. Let's see...
EOS 5DIII, EOS 5D | Rokinon 14mm f/2.8, TS-E 17mm f/4L, EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM, EF 35mm f/1.4L USM, EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM, EF 135mm f/2L USM, EF 70-200 f/2.8L IS II USM, 1.4x III, 2x III | 600-EX-RT x3 | EOS M + EF-M 22mm f/2

Going by the size of a 200 f/2 I figure a zoom is possible, probably the size of a 300 f/2.8 and lets see... $12000 or so.  But it'd be awesome for indoor sports, mandatory monopod or not!

Well you do need a vehicle to go around and take some images.  ;)
So I would throw all the cash into a Unimog.  8)

I bought my used 600 f/4L from a guy who had the 800mm mounted in a popup custom camper van, he could just open the door in the top of the camper and pop up the lens ready to go to work.
 
Presumably, he had a electronics suite, generator, etc as well.  Undoubtedly a lot more than $100K.

Most of the money would be spent on travel expenses.  Buying an expensive toy is not going to improve your photography much, it seems to me.  But if I had $100k, I would give it to Ben Affleck, and send him to whichever casino he is not banned from...let him play some blackjack (tell him the money will go to help save whales or the UAW or something)...and let him roll it into 1 BILLION DOLLARS.  Then I would hire a few of the world's best photogs and film crews, have them shoot photos of me directing a few movies (Affleck will hate these movies!), and call it a life! ;D

I recon I’d be booking a ticket to New York to go on a spending spree at B&H.
1.   2 x 1DX
2.   8-15 f4
3.   16-35 f2.8 II
4.   24-70 f2.8 Is II
5.   70-200 f2.8 IS II
6.   200-400 + 1.4x TC
7.   600mm f4 IS II
8.   800mm f5.6 IS
9.   2x 600 EX-RT
10.   Carbon tripods, heads, diffusers, remotes, filters, holdalls, batteries and memory cards to the value of around another $10,000

Which gives us a rough price of around $71,000, the rest would go on travel, a 1 week safari to Kenya and a month’s trip round Europe, failing all this I would just buy a Caterham RS500 Superlight and spend the rest on speeding fines 8)
70D - 100-400L - 24-105L - 50 f1.8 II - 100 f2.8 USM Macro - Sigma 10-20 f4-5.6 - Sigma 610 ST.
Next on the hit list -  2xTCIII + 2x 430 EX-II
