I would prefer to see some actually NEW lenses instead of the usual version 3 or 4 of something we already have, people at Canon completely lack creativity these days.

So let's make another version of what's already existing, it will create some hype anyway, and then let's start working on..... the next same version of the same lens again. Let's take the good 17-40mm that we sell too cheap anyway, add an IS and sell it twice the price.

The only thing (aside from the money I would lose) that keeps me from buying a Nikon is the glass I already own, but if they are not even able to design new glass any more, what's the reason to stay ?

I can understand they are in a slight downturn, but when you add price arrogance and design immobility, it's getting difficult to foresee a brighter future.

Still have some patience left but for how long

That's easy:
1-4mm f16

This will be the frontrunner of the best internet memes ever:
Bellybutton shots and back-hair imaging.
