Seriously, though- I'm really hoping it's a 14-24 2.8L. I would buy that in a heartbeat.

I would take my 5DIII, 16-35, and 50 1.4
That's it. Keep it simple and light and you'll be more relaxed.
In your case, I would suggest : 5DIII, 16-35, and 100L macro
That kit will not slow you down and give you plenty of good shots. Although I'd be severely tempted to tuck the 35 1.4 in the bag
I just posted a few hours ago in the $299 EOS thread that it seemed like a silly purchase; since Canon would likely be replacing it with a dual-pixel AF markII version.
I guess I was spot on with that prediction.
Sounds spot off, to me. Maybe I'm biased because I bought one for $299. But, if this rumor is true (it's CR1, just the new 100-400 has been for what, 4 years?), the next M will be an 18 MP minor update (T5i/SL1 sensor), and the 20 MP dual pixel CMOS will follow that...but when? And 'aimed at the FF Canon shooter' sounds like a $900-1000 camera, to me. So, $299 really doesn't sound 'silly' especially when the camera + 22mm pancake only costs $85 more than the 22mm pancake alone. That way, the next M can be bought with the kit zoom (since the best way to buy a kit lens is in a kit), and even selling the body for $150 you'd come out ahead... Or you'd have a cheap body for IR conversion - one almost ideally suited for it as any lens can be used.
Just my $0.02 (or $299, as the case may be).

<p><strong>Canon EOS 70D<br />
</strong><a href=\"http://www.canonrumors.com/2013/05/canon-eos-70d-coming-in-july-cr2/\" target=\"_blank\">As expected the next DSLR from Canon will be the EOS 70D</a>. No specs of the camera have leaked out yet, but the last we heard it would utilize the 18mp sensor currently in the Rebel SL1.</p>
<p>The camera will come kitted with either the EF-S 18-55 IS STM or the EF-S 18-135 IS STM. The battery grip will be called the BG-E14</p>

14-24L and the high MP body would be sweet!
I do expect the 14-24L to be announced. The world have waited long enough.
Well, perhaps we'll get an "in development announcement", and then a formal announcement at CP+ 2015.
You will have to pry my 24-105L off my cold dead hands
Why? The tamron and 24-70 IS clearly test better, especially at 24mm.
As always, everything is a package deal....lets not discount the added reach the 24-105L offers with IS and decent IQ and contrast.
24-105 has added reach, but also added distortion and a 70-200/300 lens delivers much better 70-105mm quality plus a LOT more reach.
Thing is, 24-105 covers a lot of range as a quality walk around lens. No doubt a pair of lens (like a 24-70 & 70-200) give you more in multiple metrics, namely quality & reach, but one len / one body has it's benefits for casual trips where you don't even take a bag... That's why I like my 24-105.
If you made a camera like the C100 but with 60p and 4:2:2 50Mbps codec, people would be more enthused to buy it and believe me, you want people to be enthused about your products, not thinking about which feature they have to compromise on.
Those stats would effectively bury the c300. This would require somebody admitting a mistake in the pricing of the c300. This doesn't happen in Japanese corporate culture. No, instead they double down with another overpriced cinema camera.
I still think the c300 is the best camera at its price or below, but I don't think the quality jump justifies the huge price premium.
