I'd be sure happy to see a new improved 100-400 but a 50mm f/1.2 II gets my vote with no hesitation. I just think it might take 5 years before this has a chance to materialize ...

I'd like Sigma to add a 50 1.4 and 85 1.4 to their Art line.

I would have voted either 14-24mm f/2.8L USM or 16-35mm F/2.8L USM III, but considering Canon's sticker shock policy, I would be unable to buy either one, so what's the point?

Sigma has $50.00 instant savings on 50 1.4 and $75.00 instant savings on 85 1.4 posted on their website under Standard lenses. I just found it because your post made me go look because I thought you wanted them to make these lenses. I guess you want them updated. Why would they add them to an Art Line when they are Standard Lenses?

Probably because when they took the 35mm from their standard line, and released it under their art line it went from "ok" to awesome.

Joking aside, for me it's the 135L (1.8 or 2, either one, but with IS and even better optics) or the 14-24 2.8 that has little distortion and is very sharp.

Just curious, what's wrong with the current 135L?  ???

Nothing... but modern coatings and possibly f/1.8 would be even better.  I'd like IS in concept, but I don't think I'd like the price tag.  The current one is a bargain at ~$1000; an updated one would lose some of it's charm if it's was twice that.

EF 300mm f4 L IS II (4 stops of IS)

EF 400mm f5.6 L IS (4 stops of IS)

EF 100-400mm f4.5-5.6 L IS II (no push pull zoom) (4 stops of IS)

EF 50mm f1.4 & 85mm f1.8 IS (4 stops of IS) not L

Any prime with an IS upgrade.

That would be in my #2 spot if the 135f2 wasn't so good, and if Sigma can keep up the current trend of releasing best in class lenses then their 135f1.8 will really kick butt (and lets be honest, the canon 135f2 is a really old lens. It should be an easy target). That lens is at the cutting edge of what can be done with long lengths at the fastest apertures (without costing as much as a car), and 200f2.8 is already saturated by the many zoom lenses that every single lens company has been regularly updating for the last decade.

Depending upon price, I really would like a 400mm F4L IS to be the follow-on lens to the 400 5.6 so that the new version would have IS and could accomodate a 1.4 converter resulting in a lighter weight 500+ 5.6 lens.  Yes I would like the 14-24 F2.8 but I use my Nikon with a converter for that which works out quite ok.

17-40/F4 USM II
21/anything USM
24-105/F4 USM IS II (one that doesn't have huge distortion at the wide end and isn't soft in the corners)

i.e a wide angle prime lens between 17mm and 22mm that doesn't suck because of field curvature, soft corners, etc, and doesn't have a curved front element like the 14-24 will.

What Lens do you desire to be made the most?
Many - but at a price that I can afford?
Would lova a 200-400 - but there is no way I can afford that one.
A new sealed 100-400 would be interesting - but at what price.
And when I step up to Full Frame many come into consideration.
Seeing as my 50mm 1.4 needs repairing due to broken focus - a more robust version of that would also not go amiss.
