    this question is way to broad.... there are lenses for every style and price range...

    so.... you must disclose your style and price range....

    The list is the same as for the 30D, 40D, 1D MIII or 1Ds MIII. Different lenses with different focal lengths and maximum aperture openings (f stop) have different purposes. To decide what you need means doing two things.

    1. What do you want to shoot. If you never plan on shooting say macro, you don't need a macro lens.

    2. How much do you want to spend. Image quality, lens speed and lens build quality go hand in hand with cost.

    Once you have those established figure out what you need, in what order and at what cost you are willing to spend.

    Here is a good resource on Canon lenses. You will find a section on suggested lenses for different types of photography. Good luck.
