Right now I have a 50mm f/1.4 and a 24-105mm.  I have 1700ish saved up and I'm looking to buy a 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II.  What's next on my list after that is the 100mm f/2.8L macro, but I imagine that will take quite a while to save up the sheckles for that.

It's time to revise this. Still have the 24-105mm and the 50mm f/1.4.  But I bought a 100mm f/2.8L macro and a 70-200mm f/4L USM... and I love the 100mm macro... but I was unimpressed with the 70-200... so I sold the latter and then upgraded to the 70-200mm f/2.8L USM.  I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I love it... but who knows.
Upgrade  path.->means the former was sold for the latter.

I shoot with 60D and 5D3

1) What lenses do you own and why do you love/hate each of them?
EF50mm f1.4 - I like the size and weight and lowlight ability.  I hate the picture quality at f1.4
EF24-70L - Very good picture quality at all focal lengths, particularly for portraits.  It focuses lightning fast even in low light.  I don't like the weight and the reversed zoom, it's counter intuitive.
EF70-200L ISII - Sharpest lens I have but I rarely use it due to weight and size.  You know what they say, the best camera is the one you carry with you, well it applies to lenses too.  But it's still a very good purchase.
EF70-300L - very sharp at 70-135mm, I use it for portraiture as well as landscapes.  It's much easier to carry than the 70-200/f2.8.  It fits easily in my bag occupying only one lens space.
Samyang 8mm fisheye - the only crop sensor lens I kept for my 60D.  I hate the chromatic aberration for high contrast scene and the flaring when pointed to the light-source.
Planning to get the TSE24mm and EF16-35LII soon

2) How long have you been into photography?
About a year now.

3) Any random tips for a noob like myself?
Don't buy cheap square filters, go for Lee, you'll save money in the long run.  Singh-ray filters are over-priced cheap filters, avoid them!!!
Don't take life too seriously; no one makes it out alive anyway

So far I'm the only one listing the Sigma 20mm F1.8 DG Aspherical RF (see my list in previous post above).

I absolutely love this lens for hand held indoor use on FF when the light gets really low. I've a good copy and sharpness is usable (large apertures) to excellent (slightly stopped down). Build quality is very good. Makes a great 35 mm (ok, 32 mm) equivalent on APS-C for the same use. Most underrated lens. Has a wonderful bokeh if you get up close, which you can with this one. It's a unique piece of glass.

Most used:
EF 70-200 f2.8L USM IS Mark II – always on my 7D, my favorite combo
EF-S 17-55 f2.8 USM IS – almost always on my 60D
EF 35 f2.0 – favorite low-light "short" lens before getting the 17-55
EF-S 18-135 f3.5-5.6 IS – shares time on an old XT along with the 35 for the kids to use

Semi-retired:
EF 50 f1.8
EF-S 17-85 f4-5.6 USM IS
EF 70-300 f4-5.6 USM IS

...My questions for you all are:
1) What lenses do you own and why do you love/hate each of them?
2) How long have you been into photography?
3) Any random tips for a noob like myself?...

1)
EF-S 10-22mm. Probably the best ultra wide lens out there for a 28mm sensor. Compact too. Not so keen on the distortion of off-centre faces at the wide end.... maybe it is unavoidable?

EF 17-55mm f2.8 IS. Simply love it. Feels like I have IS primes of 28mm, 35mm, 50mm, and 85mm (equivalent) all rolled into one. When I reveiw its images I never 'wish I'd used a prime'.

Nifty fifty. Doesn't get a lot of use (50mm is a bit long for a 28mm sensor as a walk-around) but it is sharp.

EF-S 55-250mm IS. Delightfully light and compact with respectable image quality. Not as high a keeper ratio as my other lenses, I think the AF needs care to get right.

EF 100mm f2.8 L IS Macro. An absolute delight. My 'razor' lens; any aperture, any point on the frame. AF can get a bit lost if it starts from a wildly blurred point on the focusing ring, understandably.

2) I got my first SLR in 1979 and have never been without one since then.

3) Maybe you're not so much a noob, but for true noobs my first tip is to get a hotshoe flash with a swivel head and use it A LOT. Will transform your photography more than ANY lens.

1) Canon 16-35L 2.8 II
2) Canon 50 1.4
3) Canon 70-200L 2.8 IS II
4) Canon 300L 4 IS
5) Canon 100L macro 2.8 IS
6) Canon 85 1.8
7) The shorty forty

Body: 5D Mark II (+ and hoping to add the Mark III next year)

Well. I am just a happy amateur who went a little more serious within the last two years, so it's not like my family survival depends on the photography income - but I dont buy gear I cannot sponsor with the extra income.

Of the lenses in my kit I would never go anywhere without the first three. The rest are for more specialized stuff, but the first three, and especially the 70-200 are my best friends. There's no denying that the 70-200 is insanely sharp, has incredible contrasts and takes an insane amount of abuse.

Oh - and the 100L will never let you down for that crossover portrait and macro work. so crisp and fantastic.

But to be honest, the lens that hugs the body on most days is the 16-35 as I do a lot of landscape and adventure travel experience stuff.

(For street stuff I use the X-Pro1 with the 35 1.4).
2 x 5DIII and various Canon and Sigma lenses + a small Fuji X lineup of stuff.
