Budget Lens Lineup for 5D Mkii?

A buddy photographer recently sold me his 5D and 5D mkii after upgrading. I'm a Nikon user and do not plan to migrate back to Canon completely but I would like to find some usable affordable lenses for the 2 bodies.

Currently I only have a 50mm f1.8. I'm thinking purchasing the following-

20mm f2.8 USM

35mm f2

50mm f1.4

85mm f1.8 or f1.2 L *I've lusted for the L version of this lens for years.

135mm f2.8 SF or 135mm f2 L

200mm f2.8 L

What do you guys think about this setup? They will be used for portraits.
