Well I guess one of the big whites, including:
200-400 4L IS 1.4x
3 & 400 2.8L IS II
5 & 600 4L IS II
This is of course, only after I win the lottery.

- 24-70mm f/2.8 MKii
- 85mm f/1.2

We're about the same.  :) plus a UWA 16-35 II 2.8

Except that I can only probably afford the 70-200 2.8 II a year after settling for just an 85 1.8 (non L) next month.

For a crop sensor camera:
1) 15-85mm f3.5/f5.6
2) 50mm f1.4
3) 70-200mm f4 IS

For a full frame camera:
1) 24-70mm f2.8L II USM
2) 70-300mm f4-5.6 L IS USM
3) 85mm f1.2L USM II

If allowed a 4th lens I'd have the TS-E 17mm f4L lens, but even the 3 quoted above are a stretch at the moment!

So hard to decided...

70-200L IS USM II
24 TS-E, I can't decide which
24-70L II

Now of course there are a bunch more, but I guess if someone said "go into the camera shop, come out with 3 lenses, they're free", I'd have to pick these 3.
5D mark 2, 5D mark 3, EF 17-40mm f/4L,  EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM, EF 135mm f/2L, EF 85mm f/1.8
Film Cameras: Mamiya RB67, RB-50, RB-180-C, RB-90-C, RB-50, Perkeo I folder, Mamiya Six Folder (Pre-WWII model)

Oh and I'd like to try the 85 1.2L for the bokeh.

Neuro - wow.  1/3 the way there on the 600mm..let us know when your dream machine lens comes in.  Can't wait to see the pics

AmbientLight - though a bit slow, don't let that 400mm L 5.6 stop you from getting a razor sharp lens.  Affordable and it does the job quite well.  Highly recommended.
Thanks

If there's someone granting these dreams then I want the following:
TSE-24L II
EF300 f/2.8 IS II
EF800 f5.6 IS + sherpa to carry it for me

What I'm actually saving up for:
TSE-24L
Nikon 14-24 f/2.8
EF24L II
Don't take life too seriously; no one makes it out alive anyway

B&H tells me early-to-mid October.  I hope so...I've got a full day outing to Parker River/Plum Island planned for the end of October. 
EOS 1D X, EOS M, and lots of lenses

Hrm; dream vs plan?

Dream:
200mm f/2L IS
300mm f/2.8L IS II
TS-E 17mm f/4L

I can't really justify anything you have to carry like a bazooka :D

I'm currently dreaming about that new Tamron, but, as they say "IT MUST BE MINE" :)
