my perfect 6 lens line up

i have been using a DSLR for approx 2yrs now (1st a 300D now a 10D) and i have finally figured out my perfect lens line up. some of these lenses i already own and some i will buy when i sell some of my unused gear.

Canon 17-40 f/4 L: relitivaly wide for landscape shots.

Tamron 28-75 f/2.8 XR Di: this will be my walk around lens. i do not use this focal length that much so instead of the more expensive Canon 24-70 i chose this.

Canon 70-200 f/2.8 non IS: i found i use this focal length the most and after using the f/4 version i think i will benifit from the f/2.8 version. i am still kind of up in the air on this and may go with the IS version.

Canon 400 f/5.6: i use this for bird & wildlife. sharp & great contrast.

for use in my home/basement studio
Canon 50 f/1.8 & Canon 85 f/1.8: both great portrait/low light lenses.

add a Tamron 1.4 TC for the 70-200 & 400 for some extra reach.

if anyone can recomend or change any one of my choices please do so.

if your interested in what gear i am selling check out the FM site, and look under the same user name or e-mail me for a complete list.
