A new wide angle prime between 17mm and 21mm would be nice.

Is the 28 f/1.4 really necessary?

Do you want an 18, 19 or 20?  Or perhaps something like 19.25  ;D ;D

Seriously. They already make a 15mm, an 18mm and a 21mm. Definitely no need for something in between, as most companies only make a 14mm and a 24mm prime

Canon 24-70 II is sharp as is the 14.  Weak spot is the 16-35. I normally don't use too many primes (I have 14, 180 macro and long glass) but really no experience with the 18 vs 21.  If you had to recommend on to complement my 24-70 and 14, which would you pick.

Thanks

I think the ONLY reason Zeiss needs to update their lenses is for the new, high MP sensors. Well, their 50mm can be refreshed. But their 35mm and 85mm are fantastic for anything less than 30MP.

For fashion and portrait work, it's hard to beat Zeiss. I hope they have two different lines for the immediate future. Until I get a camera above 30MP and A LOT more paid work, there is no reason for me to get these uber-lenses.

If it's going to be in the same price range with the new 55mm then I guess I'm going to have to dream about it :(

Absolutely.. But it would have to actually have AF :D Zeiss for Canon is all MF.

Not only Zeiss on Canon, but Zeiss in general. They don't produce autofocusing lenses. Imagine the cost of a Zeiss lens with some kind of USM autofocus.  :o

...AND Image Stabilization!  :o  :o

Well the 19mm Leitz is the best (ultra?) wide angle I've used on Canon (beats 16-35 II & 17-40.)

An 18mm might be good.

And a Canon 20mm or 21mm fixed prime would be nice if only they'd make a decent wide angle lens!

And as fast as you can say "Zeiss" we're in the price range of a decent car. But holy mother of glass, that would be AWESOME! :D
