1) Canon 17-55 f2.8 IS (you can shoot almost everything with that lens, that one and a 85 prime, would be my first two lenses to buy)
2) Canon 85 f1.8 or Sigma 85 f1.4 (The sigma is a better lens but the Canon is the best value for money canon lens ever made)
3) Tokina 11-16 f2.8 (not much competition here)
4) Canon 35 f1.4 or Sigma 30 f1.4
5) Canon 70-200L IS, 2.8 if you can afford it or f4 if you can't. The 2.8 MkII version is a killer lens and worth every cent, if you have the money go for it.

If it was for Video only my suggestions would be quite different but for photos you really need accurate AF so I only recommended the most reliable choices.
