I like the list the OP posted. I'd probably add a bunch of Canon FD lenses and F1 and T90 cameras to that. And all the traditional lab gear to go with it. Oh, and a new house to store and play with all that stuff.

Problem is that I also like things with six strings, two wheels and four wheels, watches that tick and hitting small white and yellow balls...So things get out of hand quickly - and the lady of the house ultimately is the CFO here...;-)
5DII - 50L - 135L - 200 2.8L - 24-105 - 580EXII - 430EXII - FD 500/8 - AE1-p - bag full of FD lenses

Realistically :

EOS 5D Mark III, good balance between quality and size + weight

EF 28mm ƒ/2.8 IS, all round compact lens, I like to shoot rather wide

Voigtländer APO Lanthar 125mm ƒ/2.5, outstanding macro and portrait lens

Speedlite 430EX II, no need for the bigger model

And that's "all" !

This is how I read it...
1. EOS 1DX V
2.  EOS 3D
2.  EOS 5D IV
3.  EOS 7D II
Huh?
4.  EF 14-24
5.  EF 24-70 f/2.8 L II IS
6.  EF 70-200 f/2.8 L IS III
7.  EF 200 - 400L f/2.8 II IS
Sounds realistic
8.  EF 14L f.1.4 IS
Yeah, right.
9.  EF 24L f/1.4 IS
10. EF 35L f/1.2 IS
11. EF 50L f/1.2 IS
12. EF 85L f/1.2 IS
14. EF 135L f/1.4 II IS
I guess IS would be useful, sometimes.  The extra $25000 in cash would also be.
17. EF 300L f/2.0 II IS
Ha
19. EF 500L f/2.8 II IS
20. EF 600L f/2.8 II IS
hahaha
21. EF 800L f/2.8 II IS

23. EF 2000 f/2.8 II Macro IS
24. EF 5000 f2/8 II Macro IS
25 700EX-RT (at least 16 of them)
 ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D
LOL.  Bonus points for creativity.
Well, the post said it was a "wishlist" and that "money is no object" so no harm in "wishing" ;D ... there's an old saying that goes something like "if wishers were horses beggers would fly"  ;D

24. EF 5000 f2/8 II Macro IS


And a crane to lift it...wouldn't the front element of that lens be about 2.5m (8 feet) in dia?

I'll bet Manfrotto would make you a tripod.
