That's what I've got...

5D, 28/1.8, 85/1.8, 28-135 IS.

I'm saving for an all L collection other than the 85/1.8, but that day's a long way off. The upgade to a 5D was a much more versatile way of making all my EF lenses look much better than they did on my 40D. The "glass first" argument only holds within a format, IMO. If you jump from crop format to FF, the argument goes off track.

You can also do 5DII + Sigma 50/1.4. That's a powerful combo that gives really stunning results for not much money in the lens. I covet my friend's combo of these two.
