Hello fellow Photogs, I'd like your insights on what is the BEST lens/es on a 5D Mark 2 for:

1) Portraiture?

2) Landscapes?

3) Weddings (if you can choose only 2)?

1. Canon 85mm F/1.2
2. Canon 16-35mm F/2.8 II
3. Canon 24-70mm F/2.8 & 70-200mm F/2.8 IS

 ;D

1. Portraits, 85 1.2L II OR 135 2.0L. Both are stellar lenses.

2. Landscape, easily 24 TSE 3.5L II with ND filters. The 17TSE is superb but cannot use filters.  Filters, IMHO, can tone down a burning sunrise and balance out the exposure.

3. Wedding, no experience here with weddings, but obviously the 70-200 2.8L II gives you a great range plus a 50mm 1.2L prime for closer shots!

All of the above if money is not a huge concern. Besides, who needs to retire? Put off retirement a few more years and get that lens.
A few cameras and lenses and a lot of creative energy and imagination.
