I'm not getting excited anymore. The two lenses will be 200-400 and the 24-70 f4... and you can buy them two years after the release of the 32 f4 in 2018...

The 35, 135 sells in serious numbers so why update? Man, those lenses must have been crazy good for the time when released! Wish Canon would release lenses so good it would take 20 years for it to even a point to update, hint 50 L does not quite to that...
1dx, 24-70 L II, 50 Art, 200 f2.0 L

Doesn't really matter. It will be months before you ever see one. What happened to the 200-400 that was all over the place at the Olympics? Pictures of it in the wild emerged a long, long time ago and nothing to be said.
It hasn't been officially announced yet, big difference, in case that escaped you

It still doesn't matter, months pass even after they are announced.  How long ago was the 500 and 600 II's announced?  They have only recently started becoming available.  Don't hold your breath with Canon, it will drive you crazy.
With so much of the development pipeline in the public view, its getting towards the stage where almost all of the current camera's you can actually buy from Canon are obsolete before you get them.
Come on Canon - shorten the announcement to delivery window.

Sounds like rubbish to me.

The 24-70 will be more than $850 and the 50 won't have IS.

The current 50mm f/1.4 needs improved build quality, not IS.
In landscape photography, when you shoot is more important than where.

Does the 200-400 L IS x1.4 count as already having been "announced"?
We know it's out there in the wild testing, puts it a rung above others like a 50mm that only surfaced last week (rumour-wise).

Have played with a Canon UK demo lens at an Open Day.  They are probably waiting to rack up production before announcing it officially . 
6D demo body is also out there. It's no competitor to 5d3. Tried them both.

I thought it needed improved Image Quality wide open...

Probably, but I rarely shoot all the way open. My portraits are generally between f/2.0 and f/2.8.

i end up buying another 50mm

canon 50 1.4 at amazon for $299

With a lens like that, I could see a lot of happy owners of the current 50 f/1.4 being prepared to buy a new lens.

I've already got the EF 50/1.8, Takumars 50/1.4 & 55/1.8 & 55/2.0, FL 55/1.2, Zeiss 50/4.0 (x3), OM 50/3.5 macro, and just recently a Schneider Retina 50/2.8 (in the post).

And with all of them, even I'd be interested in an EF 50/1.4 IS. You can never have too many fifties...

so what would be your fave 50mm Croubie -

i just sold my sigma 50, coming from a 50L and the 50 1.8
i missed my 50's and I'm looking into buying another 50mm again
