    I guess it depends on what you shoot.

    These are two of my favourites right now:
    Canon EF 24-70 f/2.8L USM
    Canon EF 70-200 f/2.8L IS USM

    The 24-70 is really nice, pretty good in low light. Just doesn't have the IS (Canon's Image Stabilisation)

    The 70-200 is really handy I find. I like telephoto and I really need low light performance so the 2.8 is nice. IS is really really nice because I like to shoot handheld.

    In the end, what lens you buy depends on what you shoot. Typically primes are faster with higher quality, though you can't zoom. If you want a really fast zoom with a constant aperture (like 2.8 through the entire range of the zoom) then you pay more. IS is usually more.
