85 II was my first L, and still my favorite, even if the 200 f2 is really great.

After 2-3 years from my first DSLR, my first L was the 100-400.
The only sacrifice was my L-virginity. And a dozen or so Benjamin Franklins.

Well.. long story short.. I started shooting with a Nikon! Once I felt the need that the entry level camera was not cutting it, and many other reasons I converted to Canon. I picked up 7D, because it had everything I wanted (so I thought then! HAHA)
I would say it took only a month before caving into a 70-200 f/2.8 IS lens. It is my main workhorse and wouldn't trade it for the world. Well, unless I were to scratch up enough money for the new version! 😉

My first L lens, and currently only at the moment, is the 24-70 MkII. Was probably 2 years between getting my first DSLR and this lens. It's an amazing lens.
Now I've also upgraded to a full frame camera and am again looking at something to marry to this range, probably a the 24-70 Mk II.

The original 16-35mm L with my 20D.

First DSLR Camera was in 2007
First "L" lens ... actually 4 lens all bought together (17-40 L / 24-105 L IS / 70-200 L IS II / 100-400 L IS) in 2010.
Did not have to make any "sacrifice" only had to save money for 3 years and some credit card installments, before I could buy those lenses ... but "sacriice" is too big a word to use for just some "L"uxury items.
About a year ago I sold the 17-40 and bought the 16-35 L II.

70-200 f4, loved it, IQ good and was what I could afford then, recently traded in for the 2.8 IS II, I should've bought the 2.8 first place...
