Well, I will continue using my 100 macro for rattlesnakes, nothing shorter.
Yep, 1 million confirmed with the dealer.
Shutter replaced twice (latest on Feb this year) and apparently it is in good condition (the pictures of it look OK, not particularly battered) but are they any other weak points?
.........adding C-Log to your EOS 5D Mark IV may require a quick trip to Canon service, .......

Quick trip to Canon Service.. LOL..   If two to three months is quick.... Not sure everyone is part of their CPS program or has gear that qualifies. :-D
Service? no sir....
A built in ring light?
LED lights built in similar to EF-M 28mm Macro.

Hopefully lights with more flexibility and more light output ... a ring light with 8 or 12 segments individually switchable would be a great thing. But i guess you are right because a ring light with a lot of segments would be too expensive and you need some compact but usable controls.
Right now(with regards to Ef-m lens), what canon has done is stuck a led torch to lens. Adding more features to that led light would mean adding cost and maybe issuing firmware updates as controlling those leds via a simple button on side of lens would be a headache and much easier to control through camera. And we all know canon is when it comes to issuing firmware upgrades to cameras. I am happy with current approach as long as it means broader compatibilty across digital slr range.
Lol at CR, playing dumb, of course the M stood for macro.

What else could a 2.8 prime be?

You mean other than

EF 14mm f/2.8 L USM
EF 20mm f/2.8 USM
EF 24mm f/2.8 IS USM
EF-S 24mm f/2.8 STM
EF 28mm f/2.8 IS USM
EF 40mm f/2.8 STM

Maybe the M stands for "mole".   Canon released spurious information in order to identify a suspected leaker.  I heard they now have this guy in a small cell and periodically beat him senseless with rubber mallets.
So you send in your 5D Mark IV and you get C-Log, 1.3X 4K crop, ability to switch between MJPEG and a new more compressed codec, focus peaking, zebras, 4K HDMI out, and then you notice in front that it sports a new "5D C" badge. (...cue the Twilight Zone theme...)
I guess any kind of effort Canon makes towards the (criminally neglected) EF-S mount is cause for encouragement.  Excluding the pancake, the last EF-S prime was released ?12 years ago?

Nevertheless, this was hardly the highest priority.  I was hoping for 15mm f/2 or 22mm f/2.  We could also use a weather sealed update to the 17-55, going slightly wider, maybe a 15-45mm IS.  A slow 35mm macro with a light is still a bit like a "do anything" lens, which is nice, but it isn't really adding much in the way of diversity / specialisation for crop users.

The next lens I buy will be the Laowa 15mm I think.
