What's your dream lens
« on: December 03, 2012, 10:55:56 PM »
Hey guys, what's your dream lens?
Feel free to say 14-24, or 24-70 is 2.8, but I want to hear some specialized ones, like fantasy lenses. Please don't post a whole lot, or re-post rumors, this is just for fun, and don't be ridiculous, canon could get some nice ideas. Ex. 1mm-5200mm f1.2 is usm STM p an cake...lol :)

Mine, canon ef 50mm 0.95 l usm, full metal construction, and 24-70 ii, 200mm f2, and 135 f2 like glass!!!

Sitting on a Leica m design canon ff mirror less  camera.

I own my dream lens, and until they make a mark III it's always going to be the Canon 85mm 1.2L mark II

2. EF/EF-S 85mm L f1.4 Hybrid-IS Macro (for macro & portrait & indoor events)

Zoomatar 250mm f/1.3 would be nice (although for that price, I want the Hasselblad and a tripod thrown in too).
Too much gear, too little space.

Well - my real-life dream lens is the 200-400 f/4 1.4 ext.

And if it were physically possible to produce a 14-35 f/1.4 (is it? - is it just not produced because it would kill the primes?) which was optically at least as good as the best prime in that range, prime-sharp and fast to autofocus I'd be pretty happy not to worry about the four primes in that range.  :)

2 x 5DIII and various Canon and Sigma lenses + a small Fuji X lineup of stuff.

I would think that it's difficult enough to make a 14mm f/1.4, a 14-35 f/1.4 sounds impossible.   I think the wider you go the harder it is to make it super fast.

Hmmm. How about a 35mm f/1.2 L IS that's excellent wide open? (Bonus points for making it a pancake.)

That and a 24-120 f/2.8 IS. I don't care how much it weighs.

How about a CANON 120-300 f2.8 is?  I know Sigma makes one but if price was no object and Canon made one that would be #1 on my list.

Also would like to echo the 200 f2 or 300 f2.8 is ii l       if price is not an issue ...
