I will be getting a 6D on Monday and I'm still deciding on lenses. I think I have narrowed it down to the 17-40 L, 85 f/1.8, and the 200 f/2.8 L II.

Just curious of your thoughts on this lens. I wanted a telephoto length and I don't mind that it's a prime. I would use this mainly for distant landscape shots.

The lens has gotten great reviews. The only thing I would point out to you is that none of your lenses will have image stabilization, which can be a big deal.

You might want to think about going for the 70-200L f/4 IS. It would cost you more money, but for landscapes it might be a superior choice to the 200L.
