I'd buy silver and hope black and white film becomes stylish again.

Ha, Ha, Ha.
Thankssss to all of our Friends and Teachers, One thing that I know, We can spend all the money in our pocket to make sure that The Photographic Company are making the money and pay the stock holders  in every years.
BTW, I do not think any problem about the Cameras + Lenses companies, Because We " Most of CR . Member " have GAS. illness from time to times.
Have a great / Beautiful Week End, Sir, Madam.
Surapon.

Dear surapon,
Great question! I would likely buy one or two more lenses, a few more accessories, and some studio equipment, but I'd use the vast majority of the money for travel so I could take images from new and different places.

Lenses: 24-70 f/2.8 L II, Sigma 50mm f/1.4 Art.
I would buy a new high fps, high buffer camera, the 1DX or maybe the mythical 7D2, and a wad of cards, extra batteries. Then I would get the Big White of my dreams - I would have to rent first to decide which one I can handle, 500 or 600 f/4 II - and the 1.4x and 2x TC IIIs. Then a full gimbal, then evaluate my existing heavy duty tripod (Feisol) for use with Big White.
Then I would get a tiny trailer, either Cricket or Scamp, both weigh ~1200# empty. http://www.crickettrailer.com/index-v2.php    I think that my existing car, a 2014 Subaru Forester, could handle it. If not, move up to a 6 cylinder AWD. Then - hit the road and see America (and Canada) first! Gas, food, camp necessities, etc.

If I had $100k to spend on lenses, I'd hire an engineer to design a programmable autofocus/aperture controller that speaks the Canon lens protocol, and build mod kits that interface with various current-generation manual-focus, manual-aperture lenses.  Then, I'd sell them and use that money to buy camera gear on an ongoing basis.

And then eventually design and build a replacement for the Canon 50mm f/1.0.

hmm, interesting

2x 1DX
1x 5DIII
1x 6D
1x of each L prime between 24 and 200 minus the 200/2.8
1x 200-400
1x of each 16-35, 24-70 and 70-200 f2.8 version
A half dozen 600ex-rt and two st-e3-rts

A nice trip somewhere with that lot and if there is still money left after that I would probably get a 600/4 and some other random assorted stuff like bags and memory cards.

After buying the gear I need I'd use the rest of the money to travel and see the world, only I'd pay someone to carry all my gear.
5D II | 17-40L | 24-105L | 70-200 f4L IS | 135L | SY 14mm f/2.8 | Sigma 50 f/1.4

EOS M | 22 f/2 | 11-22 IS

Heck, for that amount of money, one could get a full digital MF setup, IQ260 back, mini-ArcaSwiss Metric view camera for digital back, several digital grade MF view camera lenses for the ultimate in landscape photography - and still have some money left over for travel.
