As above pretty much.

35mm f/1.4L II that's lighter and with weather sealing.

85mm f/1.2L III that can focus quicker. At least be able to keep up while AI Servo focus tracking my Grandma on her walking frame  ;D

A reworked 1.8/50mm III or 1.4/50mm II with IS and STM for sub 500 USD.
1.4/35mm L II with less CA, better bokeh.
More lenses with hard stops left and right for follow focus filming.

Reasonable requests in order of desire:

Canon 24-70mm f/2.8 (H)IS L $3000

Canon 135mm f/1.8 (H)IS L $2000 (apochromatic optics, literally just copy the new Zeiss 135mm 2.0 APO and add 1/3rd of a stop with image stabilization please)

Canon 35mm 1.4 II L (weather sealed finally please!) $1400

Canon 50mm 1.4 L $1000 (best image quality of any 50mm lens)

Stuff I dream of:

Canon 50mm 1.8 H(IS) L  with 24mm TS-E image quality $1400


If Canon released these lenses today I would fill all the holes in my kit instantly.

Are you listening Canon?

I need the 14-24 to be at $3000 so it makes the 14L prime a bargain.  Also, a 20/1.8L would be teh r0ckz0rz.

Just think of this:

14L
20L
24L
35L
50L
85L
135L
200/2L

EF-S (28, 30 or 35)mm f/1.8 ~$500, but we know that's not gonna happen anymore...
EF 50mm 1.4 II- probably not happening either...
EF-S 16mm- nope, don't see that one coming at all.

I stand a better chance of saving up for the L primes than Canon making any of the above...  ::)

Simpler solution: 14-200mm f/1.2L IS USM/STM (switchable) :P

Canon EF 14-24mm f/2.8 L USM
- Optically it should be on par or better than the legendary Nikon 14-24
- It completes the rest of Canon's great zooms; 14-24, 24-70, 70-200 and 200-400. (way better than the awkward 16-35)

....

Does anyone consider a 35 1.2 a possibility? or a 24?

New Tele-Lenses:
100-400mm/4-5.6 (<2500$) OR
400mm/4 IS USM (not DO) (<4000$) OR
500mm/5.6 IS USM (<4000$)

I have a 300mm/2.8 but want more reach...

hmm, wishlist, yes!

70-200 f2.8 L USM II
This version should have:
-less weight (however achieved, it just shouldn't feel cheap)
-less purple/green LoCA fringing at f2.8
-a tad more contrast and sharpness wide open
-even faster AF (feedback loop would be nice)
-a hood with the click like the IS II version has
-weather sealing
-focus limiter with more steps (1.5m-inf, 3m-inf, 4.5m-inf)
-AF stop button(s)
-white-white instead of muddy-grey-white paint OR a black painted version of it...

the old version (17years old) is a really nice lens, but the above mentioned points could be improved. except for the optical formula it wouldn't require much R&D. It would become a little less versatile lens compared to the IS II version due to the lacking IS, but I hope the pricing would reflect this. the IS II version shows that stellar performance wide open is possible...why not have the same thing without IS? I think this is not asking for too much ;) and I would pay a premium over the old version. for that I paid 1100EUR and never regretted the purchase. a lens with the above mentioned improvements is probably 1500€ to 1600€ worth to me, maybe 1700€ if it is featherlight.
also if someone invents a 70-180 f2.2 L USM lens at the same weight...oh well, now I'm dreaming... ::)
