I just recently purchased the 35L, though I do not regret it. Really loving that lens, and it compliments the 85L so nicely. I had the Sigma 30mm f/1.4 when I had a crop sensor, and the autofocus was never consistent. It would take a lot for me to consider another Sigma lens, no matter how good the image quality can potentially be. If there is a 35L II about to debut, I doubt it is in response to Sigma, but rather in response to Canon L series owners looking for a refresh. While I'd like weather sealing, I find the current 35L to be a great lens, and I probably won't get too envious of the II.
Now, if it was a 35 f/1.2L...
I'd like a wide angle, and a 14-24 would be intriguing. That is a lens I'd save up and pay for if it is superlative. 16-35 kind of gets "only" good, not great, reviews, though perhaps that is just in comparison to Nikon's 14-24. Was about ready to pull the trigger on the Tokina 16-35, though I might just wait to see if anything happens on January 8th.
