The 14-24 would just be the perfect addition to canon's f/2.8 L Zoom lens lineup.
Canon 6D -- 24-105 f/4L -- 50mm f/1.8

35mm 1.2 and 135mm 1.8 are nice.
I want a reasonable small, fast standard zoom, like a 28-50mm f2.0

14-24mm with 100-400 in second place.

The 200-400 is just too dear at £12000.

My wanted list -probably a little different
« Reply #80 on: May 14, 2013, 06:02:00 PM »
Since I shoot some different things than most, I'd like to have a few different lenses which not be found on most other peoples' radar:

135mm - 180mm TS-E f/4.0 with both great far field and very good close-up capabilities, plus 3 axis IS (dream on) for a long-ish product lens with nearly zero per cent color aberrations and killer sharpness out to the edge of the image circle. The 90mm doesn't cut it for very large objects (cars, cars, cars) at extreme oblique angles when trying to maintain a relatively "normal" size perspective between the near and far portions of the subject matter.

Super high resolving, super high contrast 50mm f2.0 L with IS.

Super high resolving, super high contrast 16-24mm f/2.8 L with IS.

Super high resolving, super high contrast 24-50mm f/2.8 L with IS.

Super high resolving, super high contrast 50-105mm f/2.8 L with IS.

Modestly priced 400mm f/4.5 L IS

In all of the above lenses, except the TS-E, my purpose for specifying them as I did, is to trade aperture or zoom ratio for better image quality, something I would prefer to have, especially in light of the (hopefully) very high resolution per image area sensor cameras coming pretty soon. Whether these cams use smaller pixels, true color pixels, pixel-shifting multiple exposure techniques or some other method to yield their higher image resolution, better lenses will make them all the more useful.

Just my thoughts.

Regards,
David

Not unrealistic with Nikon just announcing the 32mm f/1.2

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.

I also like the idea of a modest-range walkaround lens. Longer reach than 70mm, but not going crazy like the 28-300mm to reduce distortion and keep size/weight reasonable. However, I think this one sabotages its chances in two key areas:

1) I'd be shocked to see a zoom with that kind of range open up to f1.4. Even f2.0 would probably be fantasy. Consider the 28-300mm which has f3.5-5.6, or the 28-135mm which also has f3.5-5.6. I think we'd be lucky to get f2.8-3.5 over a 24-135mm range. Throw in IS and there goes your weight criteria.

2) If they sold a great-quality lens in that range, we'd have no need to buy any other bright primes or even the 24-70mm f2.8 ii! The kings of marketing and product-differentiation would never allow it. That reasoning explains the good-but-not-great IQ of the 24-105mm.

But as long as we're dreaming... count me in for one also!  :)

RE Point 1: You might very well be right about the 1.4; so let's just say a lens that's 2.8 at the long end, and whatever it ends up being (faster of course) at the wide end, so it can take full advantage of the X AF points in the 5D3.  As for the weight, OK, maybe a little more, but not much!

RE Point 2: Yes, I suppose it might reduce the sale of some of their other lenses  ;)  But it might also reduce the sales of competitors lenses.  Might be a fair trade.

On the other hand, perhaps Sigma or Tamron might like to step up to bat?

I can dream, can't I?

I voted for the 14-24mm, but what I would REALLY love to see would be a lightweight, sharp EF 17-70mm 2.8 with a 67mm filter thread (although 77 would work). With that and any variant of 70-200mm or the 70-300mm L, I could be happy with a two-zoom lens setup. I think Canon really missed the boat with the EF 24-70 f/4 IS; they needed to differentiate it more from the already strong existing lenses. Heck, I'd even be happy with an EF 24-85mm II with a fixed f/3.5 and keep the 67mm filter thread. Throw in IS, keep it below a grand and I'd jump on it.
5D III | 5DII | Fuji X-E1 | EF 17-40 | EF 24-105 | EF 35 IS | EF 50 f/1.4 | EF 100L | EF 70-300L | EF 100-300L | EF 300 f/4 IS

Hmm, I saw this lens on ebay: http://www.canon.com/camera-museum/camera/lens/ef/data/standard_zoom/ef_35~135_4~56_usm.html

I think this range would be awesome for indoor sports/martial arts (like taekwondo) on a APS-C camera.
Can one hope for an EF-S 35-135 f2.8-4 USM?

I would buy it in an instant.

Everything else can wait or use the older/current versions.  :)

Number 4 is the least probable lens to come out any time soon. There have been two new 24-70Ls not so long ago (24-70/2.8L'II and 24-70/4L IS). It should be disqualified :D. 35L'II should be on that list.

Voted for the 400mm F4. I think this is very potential lens now they have the glass and parts for the 200-400 which it could share a lot of. Just a simple matter of a few adjustment and voila! Although I'm not so sure this would fit into my reasonable big white price thinking of £4500-£5000 judging on the price of the 200-400.
