For something concrete to discuss, how much different can a picture be with a Canon 40mm pancake vs a Canon 24-105mmL? The 40 will take you down to f/2.8, but that's only one stop off the f/4.0 of the zoom. And the zoom has IS while the pancake does not. I'm seeing few instances these days where the 40mm gets mounted to my 5D3. The 24-105 usually gives me adequate results -- and a lot more versatility.
The only fact that makes sense is if you can't afford the 5D Mark III. That's the only, true reason here. Period!

Canon's sensors are embarrassing compared to Sony's.

1Dx 400f/2.8 L II, Shot @ f/2.8 & 1/1000th ISO200
This was one of those Shots where I'de pretty well dicked it from the start, forgot to change the ISO, Forgot to change the Shutter Speed, came around a corner, Sun pretty well set behind the Trees, and saw this Guy resting inside the Trees, shot from the Hip as they say, 3 shots & he was up & away.
The 1Dx & 200-400f/4 was also on the seat, didn't look at it for this shot, this is where the f/2.8 is sooooo handy.
Saved in Post, almost.
Both cameras were hand held, but resting on the shelf of a hide (blind) at sufficiently high shutter speeds that there was no camera shake. Iso was at 640 and the aperture at f/5.6. I post 6 collage pairs out of many shots, which were are representative.
This past summer, while I was photographing birds at one of our local wetland preserves, a fairly large group of female deer, ranging in age from yearlings to several years old and maybe a couple elders, wandered up for a
Possibly a full frame rebel I read a few years ago Canon had a long term goal or returning to all full frame cameras. If that is still a gole we could see the 6d sensor in a rebel body.
For those dogging these lenses because they are "the same lens with IS added for much more money," frankly that is BS. i.e. look at the difference in performance between the old and new 35mm:
35mm f/2 vs 35mm f/2 IS
