I welcome suggestion.

Budget Route:

Indoor/Portrait: 85mm f/1.8 -super sharp
Sports/Action: 70-200 f/4L IS -best L value

Landscape/Scenery 17-40 f/4L -almost a 16-35, except 1 stop and 2x price. Very lightweight and good walkaround range for crop body.

Go Pro:

Indoor/Portrait: 50mm f/1.2L -amazing bokeh, more responsive than the 85L

Sports/Action: 70-200 f/2.8L II -wish I had got this lens with 2xIII instead of 100-400
Landscape/Scenery: 16-35 f/2.8L II -pretty sweet if you have the budget

Other:
100mm f/2.8L Macro -super sharp and new 4-stop/3-axis IS
TS-E 17mm f/4L -Canon's sharpest wide angle plus tilt-shift capability
24L/35L/85L/135L/200L: pick a prime based on range you want to explore
