Most of these lenses already exist, a 14-24mm 2.8 would fill a hole in the Canon lineup for those who want an UWA similar to Nikon's stellar 14-24. If it ever comes out and is as sharp as the current 24-70 II then I think we'd have a winner.

+1

14-24 f2.8L

No pressing needs at all for a new lens, but I have been contemplating adding a 50mm, although I mostly prefer zooms. So I voted for a 1.4 MkII, I don't think I'd need the L, also it seems quite difficult (for me) to get that little extra out of it.

I voted for 24-70mm F/2.8L IS USM, though not sure I would buy it if they did launch one. Definitely not at the top of the shopping list.

What is interesting is how all our interests and needs differ, and that is shown by there being no true breakaway lens that we all want.
1D X + backup + different L lenses etc.

I want a lens that does not yet exist.

I would like a 24-135 f1.4-f2.8 L with IS.

Preferably less than 800 grams; black, not white; and using a 77mm filter.

That would be my perfect walkabout lens (the the perfect kit lens).  The 24-105L is really nice, but I wish it were faster.  I've finally come to appreciate the advantage of the faster lens with the 5D3 AF system.

400 F5.6 II with IS and sharper optics.

and a new version of the 1200 F5.6, one that none of us can ever afford to buy but can drool over. (must be waterdroolproof)

I voted for the 400mm F/4L IS USM. I have the excellent 70-300 L and would love a 400 f/4 which could be used with both the 1.4X and 2X TCs. I could sell it and go for the new 100-400 when it comes out, but the former option is much more attractive to me, though more expensive.

Other lenses I'd like: 14-24 (or 12-24, a patent exists!) and 50 f/1.4 IS

200-400  TC 1.4.  My passion is wildlife photography and something like that would give me the capacity to really reach out.  A lens like that would bankrupt me, but still, I'd find a way . . . .

I'll take any stabilized mid-telephoto prime at f/2 or faster! (or a stabilized 50mm f/1.4)

I voted for an update to the 400f5.6. Technically a 100-400 could perform just as well, but I would prefer something with less moving parts.

I voted for the Canon 50mm f/1.4 USM (as long as it's true USM - which I expect any replacement to the current 50mm f/1.4 will be).

Having written that (& voted) - I would like to add 2 other suggestions:

1) With last month's announcement of Sigma's new 18-35 f/1.8 DC HSM Art for APS-C, as a ground-breaking fast zoom - I would like to see a manufacturer (preferably Canon) come out with a complementary fast zoom lens, in the 30mm - 70mm range. I realise having a f/1.8 (or f/2) zoom all the way from 30mm to 70mm might be biting off more than one can chew (without compromise in size, image quality, etc).  So even having a 35mm - 60mm range could still work well.  USM focus to be used (or STM - at a push). IS not a priority for this lens.

2) Canon 50mm f/2 USM IS.  I would probably prefer the 50mm f/2 USM IS over a Canon 50mm f/1.4, due to the smaller size / potential lower cost. Obviously if the 50mm f/1.4 is sharper @ f/2 than a 50mm f/2 @ f/2 (wide open) - I would take that into account.  The recently announced Canon 35mm f/2 USM IS looks like a great lens, awesome IQ wide open: sharp, contrasty, great bokeh, etc. So I see a Canon 50mm f/2 USM IS as a logical near future release.

I would be keen to hear other's thoughts / input / calculations (eg of weight, size, filters, estimated cost, etc) on the above lenses.

Regards

Paul
