I shoot with a 5d Mark iii, I previously had a 7D and a 60D

Previous lens were
- 18-200mm f3.5-5.6
- Sigma 50-500
- Sigma 17-70 f2.8-3.5
- Canon 50mm f1.8

Currently I have
- Canon 50mm f1.4
- Canon 70-200 f2.8 is ii

Accessories
- 580 ex ii
- Manfrotto 055cxpro4
- Manfrotto 680B
- Manfrotto Ball heads
etc

Nearly every lens can take amazing pictures, but the real magic comes from the photographer. I started basic and tried to perfect skill by skill with the lens I had.  I would unequivocally recommend any of the above lens and they have all given me amazing shots.

I think you should upgrade when you feel the need to, for example I didn't like the pop up flash on the 60D so that lead me to buying a 580ex ii.  Now that I have the 580ex ii I'm learning how to use it more so that requires new spending on items such as stofen omni bounce, gary fong lightsphere etc.

My favourite lens by far is the 70-200 f2.8 is ii, it is well worth the money!

5D3, ELAN 7

Tamron 17-35 2.8-4 (Sold my 10-22 with my 7D) Very impressed with this over 20mm.

40 2.8 Flapjack

24-70 2.8L Sr.

70-200 4L

Lensbaby Composer, Macro Kit.

What am I missing?

Dedicated Macro Lens, perhaps EF 100 2.8
Fixed Wide maybe Samyang 14mm
Low Light Prime, could be 35 or 50 1.4

I've started with my first DSLR, the Canon 5D Mark II and a 50mm f/1.8 lens 2 years ago. This is my collection of gear so far.

Body: 2x Canon 5D Mark II

Canon 16-35mm f/2.8L II:  (The least sharpest of the lens I own. Haven't used it much. Plan on using it more for video with merlin steadicam)

Canon 24-70mm f/2.8L II: (Just received and lovin' it! Can't wait to go out and shoot with it!)

Canon 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II: (Big and Heavy, but outstanting lens. Haven't been using it much since getting the 85mm 1.2)

Canon 24mm f/1.4L II: (Just ordered this lens. Will receive it next week  ;D)

Canon 35mm f/1.4L: (Love the focal length and colors. This is my most used lens.)

Canon 50mm f/1.2L: (Not exactly the sharpest lens wide open, but has a magical, 3D look to images when shot wide open. Got some great shots with it)

Canon 85mm f/1.2L II: (Just an amazing portrait lens. Sharp as a tack wide open. Just love the seperation and creamy bokeh it produces.)

Canon 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS: (I'm not really a macro shooter. Just have this in case I need to take detail shots. Lens is super sharp!)

Your 10-22 is a very good one (I had it until it was stolen). True it is not FF but I guess we are after quality so...
Instead you could save for a TS-E 17mm L.
In contrast A FF 17-70 or a 16-35 II is a minor upgrade to an existing 10-22 (if it is an upgrade at all).

Just my opinion...

Speaking of lenses considering selling my 24-105l to help finance a 24-70 ii I can get for $2200 new. I do want the extra stop but just curious if anyone else agrees if the extra coin is worth it.

You not only gain an extra f-stop, you will also gain in SHARPNESS and SPEEDY AF. Well worth it

Now...Canon need to release better 16-35 or 14-24 f2.8
Body: 1DX -- 5D III
Zoom: 16-35L f4 IS -- 24-70L II -- 70-200L f2.8 IS II
