Assuming you mainly want something from the L lineup (Canon's pro lenses) I guess the closest alternatives to give you a 3-lens setup would be:

35mm f1.4 L (expensive) or 40mm f2.8 pancake (cheap!)

24-70 f2.8 L II (expensive) or 24-105 f4 L (less expensive)

70-300 f4-5.6 L or 100-400 f4.5-5.6 L

Anything approaching a 600mm in a zoom is going to be pretty expensive (e.g. the new Canon 200-400 f4 L with built-in 1.4x extender is in the £11000-12000 range I think!) and from Canon you're looking at primes in the 400mm-plus focal length range (unless you use an extender with one of the shorter zooms).

Reviews of the above here  (and plenty of other places as well).
