I also have Canon EF 70-200mm f/4.0 L USM - this one has just stunning optics, it is a lot sharper than my 24-105, but it is not as versatile. If I had the cash at the time, I would have bought the Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8 L USM, but it is a lot more expensive. Both of these are outstanding for portrait.

And the last one in my bag is Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM. This is not an "L" lens, but it is very very sharp (just as good as "L") and offers super wide aperture. Since it is a fixed focal length lens aka prime lens, I use it very seldom. I wouldn't recommend buying it unless you have a specific use for a 50 mm lens or a wide f/1.4 apperture.
cool! thanks for the advice
