I honestly wouldn't mind a 70-200 f/2L IS lens.

Yeah but that would make the 135 and 200 f2 kinda redundant!

True, but that's not my problem :)

No, but carrying one around on your shoulder, with a 200-400/4 on the other shoulder, might cause you some medical problems...   :P

I don't know, they might balance each other quite nicely :P.

I wonder exactly how much glass that would take to construct such a lens?

My dream lenses are the old 20-35/2.8 and 80-200/2.8 but with usm and is. Of course the same build quality with metal as the original lenses. By the way, I am looking for a 80-200 lens in mint condition.

My dream lens would be a: 24-105 f/2.8 IS. I'm sure it'd be huge and expensive, but I'd happily sell most of my lenses and then just carry this one around all day if Canon made one. This plus a teleconverter would be extremely useful.

TS-E 17mm f/4 L
OR
Canon MP-E 65mm 1-5x

The reason I put them on my "dream" list isn't the price. I could afford them, but I doubt I'll ever be able to justify the price for such specialty lenses. Pretty much all super-high-quality non-AF lenses are on my dream list.

At first it was the 50L, then got it :) Now, it's the Canon 200mm f/2, but I'm a million miles away from it  ::)

TS-E 17mm f/4 L can be a very nice landscape lens. It is not necessary to be used for architecture only.

24-105 F2.8L IS, with the sharpness of the current 24-70 F2.8L Mark II. I don't think that's TOO much of a stretch. I miss that extra 35mm on the long end.

A still utopical dreams lens for me would be a Canon 12 or 14-24mm 2.8 or 2.8-4.0
As having marvelled about the likeliness of such a piece of glass, before I do not add too many words  8)
