My "semi pro" 300D lens kit recommendations/thoughts

I've been reading a lot about other people's proposed choices (mostly revolving around consumer zooms like the 75-300 et al) so I thought I'd throw out mine:

1) 18-55 ef (included)
2) 70-200 f4L ($599)

This is the main beast! An incredible lens for the price and L to boot

3) 100-400mm IS L. (~$1100)

Forget the 75-300, and the 28-135. They don't even have pan modes. This goes out to an incredible 600mm with the focal crop factored in.

4) 50mm f1.8 ($69)

Low light, and cheap

5) 28mm prime (for achitecture, undecided)

6) Fast, good, 28-70...Thinking of Sigma DG 28-70....~$399?..Thoughts?
