Primes are great. It makes you work for the shot and shooting on the open side generates some great bokeh. I'd love to pick up another 3 or 4 primes and 2 zooms.
EF 24mm f/1.4L USM
EF 50mm f/1.4 USM
EF 100mm f/2 USM
EF 300mm f/2.8L IS USM
EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM
EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM

All of which would be equipped with B&W filters.

To be honest, skip on the 50mm 1.4 since the bokeh is not that much better and also on the 100 f/2

If you want to upgrade your 50mm, save for the 1.2L instead and instead of the 100mm, grab the 135L. Then just add a 1.4TC and have a close match for the 200 2.8L. Skip on the filters also if using hoods. Holds better contrast in most conditions.

Slow shutter exp looks good.
