I wouldn't be surprised if there is such a thing as a 50mm f2 IS STM, would make a lot of sense for the video people. 135mm f2 IS would be high on the list of realistic things. I also wonder if they won't axe the 24-105 and the 28-135 and combine the two in a consumer grade lens. The 24-105 is already going so cheap it is only twice the price of the 28-135 and a replacement for example 24-135 IS USM would make a great kit with the 6D to differentiate the market and also push more of the far more expensive 24-70 f4. The 400 and the 100-400 have been ready for an update for ages but I wouldn't be surprised if they don't get updated this time either. An updated 17-55 f2.8 with weather sealing would make sense if there is a 7DII coming out soon. An updated non-stabilised 70-200 f2.8 would be nice. Maybe an updated 180mm macro so it matches the new sigma offerings of 150-180mm with f2.8 and IS
There's a lot of lenses that canon make I don't see much point in making any more, there's for example USM and a non USM version of the 75-300. A couple of the wide primes I wonder about and also the 200 2.8. If that got IS it would make more sense to keep it. I wonder if anyone has bought a 135 softfocus any time in the last few years? An updated 50mm macro would be interesting but then they may as well just axe the lens completely as the 100mm macro isn't much more expensive and the 60mm macro is more suited to aps-c anyway.
