Gunzorro I hate myself for being a snob sometimes and I know just by admitting it and not doing anything....is not good enough..
For what I do ...probably 24-70 2.8L + 50 1.4 + flash would suffice......but I like to shoot at available light, at fast apertures (for both the bokeh, subject isolation and also to complement for the lack of light)...
To me, as a photographer, if somebody would ask me what tool I would like, I would say a fast & accurate body, high clean ISO and 16mp tops,weather sealed (and perhaps dual card slot). I don't care about high rate of fps (4 fps is decent enough), nor do I care about high resolution (such as 21,36,45 megapixels).
Of course, besides being a snob, I can actually TELL the difference in these lenses that I own now..
Surely, 24-70 was a wonderful lens,but the 24L II and 135L are in a league of their own..in terms of sharpness,contrast,color rendition etc...
Being used to soft images, I'm amazed at the performance of these two lenses.. Of course I try to always educate myself that photography isn't about perfect sharpness and colors...and I don't want to fall in the same foul play that others find themselves.
I also try to justify to myself that I invested all this money in these lenses and body not just to make money (out of photography) but also because I am passionate about photography. Because, that was the main reason why i bought my first camera, to enjoy & learn photography, not to make cheap money doing cheap events.....
I will agree that I would be an idiot to buy any other lenses until I earn some money by using these....
What I will try to acquire, yet....is a nother body because I cannot take it anymore with switching lenses...and I ain't sellin' the primes just to get back to zoom(s).
Others would say that a perfect combo for events would be 2 bodies and 24-70 II + 70-200 2.8 II.
That's true, in terms of versatility,you simply cannot beat that.. (and acutally in terms of optic, they're very close to fast primes)...but that's where the similarities end..
