I'll take a 50mm f/1.2 IS.  Otherwise it's the current f/1.2 one.

Really hoping they DON'T make a 50 with IS to keep the price down but then again a cheap 50 already exists, so next will be a mid priced one. Trouble is Canon's idea of 'mid-priced' seems to be $800 now  :(

You don't need to even be super smart or have a crystal ball, the next mid range 50 will have IS. Every one of their mid range lenses will have is so your next step is Cinema lenses one day if you get serious about it. It seems like they are trying to price non-L primes just under $1000 and above $500. I also believe they are updating the prime lenses with the L versions coming later, kinda a marketing move actually. I see the logic in it anyways. I am curious what they would do if they designed a new 50L as its pretty amazing as it is. None of their L primes are really left wanting other than adding some gasketing to some.
A trend i am really pleased about is their design efforts with aperture blades, they are finally making them circular as a standard even on the cheaper ones. I believe all the ones they released this year are circular if i am not mistaken. I imagine all new L primes will be 9 bladed circular aperture blades.

With the exception of the 50 1.4 and possibly the 50L, which other lens would you guys like to see updated? I've heard people mention the 135L, 85 f/1.8 and the 100-400. Are we waiting for any others. Plz don't say 14-24 cos thats not an update!

the new 22mm EF-M f2 STM has 7 circular blades like the 16-35L and there is something about the 7 circular blade look I really really like both in terms of blur and starbursts with very narrow apertures
I agree they should just make all circular be it 7, 8 or 9 just no more with only 5...

As Canon's upgraded lenses have unreasonable prices, I'm not waiting for any lens to be upgraded.

What about a plain and simple 50 1.4L? An updated version with better focusing, build, and image quality? IS would be nice, but that would jack up the price a bit. It sucks that you have to spend almost $1,500 for an L quality 50mm prime. I'm sure many people would happily pay $800 or so for this. Add IS and make it $1,000 and you really have a winner.

I believe under $1000 is the new under $500 for Canon.

As far as aperture blades go i wonder if they choose how many blades based on the type of photography the lens is intended for like landscape lenses getting the best sun stars due to blade design. More blades for better bokeh balls with portrait lenses as well as cinema applications.
