Got to try out the 135 f/2 last weekend and yep...I'm gonna have to get it.  Not sure when though.  I could try to get it in February.   It's a definite lens I want now.

That lens is fantastic. 

The one I want to try is the new Sigma 120-300 f/2.8.  Once again, LensRentals can come in handy for this one.  I rent it during football season and use it along with the 70-200 f/2.8 IS II.  That extra reach could really come in handy to catch shots on the opposite side of the field.  If it works great, then time to add it to the list too.

Suddenly, my wallet feels quite empty. :(

Recently purchased the Canon 200mm f2.0, which was on my wish list for a long time. Now with the bigger purchases out of the way, I'm looking forward to getting a 35mm f1.4. May go for the Siggy.  There's always another lens to get.  :)

I'm not sure... I thought I wanted a 35... then no... then I thought maybe i'll go to the 85 f/1.2, but that is a ton of money to spend on an occasional prime, and the 135 is really nice but the focal length would be redundant with my 70-200mm f/2.8L is mkii... the 50's are all soft wide open... so I don't know.

I want something that is a solid wide open, but not overly wide like the 35 (and I realize that isn't that wide, but coming from a crop, it is comparable to a 22mm on a crop and that is pretty wide for what I usually photograph), so maybe I'll just go cheap for a little while and get an 85mm f/1.8.  $300 for some low light functionality... solid performer, but obviously not as good as its big brother.
Upgrade  path.->means the former was sold for the latter.

I'd like a Sigma 200-500, painted 18% grey; I figure if it is going to be photographed more than photographed with I might as well provide people with decent white balance...

That said I'd like a 300 f/2.8 but I'll settle for the f/4 I have a line on for a trade for my 24-70.

I'd probably do better to invest more time and less money.

Debating to replace my 24-105 for a 24-70 II for improved IQ reasons. Still on the fence whether I'll do this. 

I debated that same issue.  Now I'm debating whether to sell the 24-105L, as I haven't used it since getting the 24-70L II.

same here

Lens I want

Now that my 200-400 is being shipped
replace 500F4 IS with 600 II
new 100-400.  Sold the old one, did not like the push pull

If they replace the 180 macro, might be interested. 
Possibly replacement for the 28 - 300 if they make it much sharper but with the 70-300 not sure I will really miss the 28-70 range.

If they make the 70-300 fixed F4 that would warrant a serious look

If they replace the 400 F5.6 with either 400 F5.6 IS or 400 F4 IS, I would be interested.

General goal is not to increase the number of lens

I want the 200-400

Instead of which lens do you want this thread should be which lenses do you want.

Here's my roadmap, in order of priority.  I do a lot of macro.  I tossed in bodies too:
EF-S 60mm macro (sometimes the 100 is too long on APS-C)
100mm L macro (upgrade from non-L)
EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 (just sold the 10-22mm coz I found I preferred the less wide end)
7D mk ii (where the hell is it???)
6D (move to full frame, I don't need the 5D iii)
TS-E 24mm (ultimate landscape lens)
Sigma 35mm f/1.4 (just because...)

I reckon Canon should definitely make, say, an EF-S 23mm pancake.  A compact, high-quality, inexpensive walk-around 35mm-equivalent for APS-C.  It would be a slam-dunk.   But, perhaps they are concerned it would undermine sales of the more expensive stuff.  Sigh...

The 500 f/4L IS II. My 500 gets heavy after a while and the 1.5 pound decrease would be nice. But perhaps I should get the 600 II for more reach but that weighs as much as my present 500 but it would be good on the 5D3.
 
The 100-400 II if it's a lot better than my old 1-4, doesn't cost a fortune and isn't too long to pack.

The 7D II if it delivers a lot more than my 7Ds.

So many decisions, so little money.  :-\

I would really fancy a big white. After switching to FF my 100-400 is not as long as it used to be. Do not know which one yet, but probably will find it too expensive to pull the trigger.

Also on my desire list are:
- TSE-24 or 17
- 135 2.0
- 100 L macro
- 2nd body (7D2 maybe?)
5D3, 16-35LII, 24-70 2.8LII, 24-105L, 85LII, 70-200 2.8LII, 100L, 135L, 100-400L, 50 1.4, 40 2.8, Sigma 180 3.5 EX, 1.4x TC III, 600EX, 550EX

I thought of replacing my current 70-200 2.8L (non IS) with the 70-200 2.8L IS II. On the fence if should go for it or instead keep the existing 70-200 f2.8L and add the 85 1.2L II to my armory.

So possible list

70-200 f2.8L IS II (to replace the original 70-200 f2.8L)
24-70 f2.8L II (to replace the orginal 24-70 f2.8L)
85 f1.2L II (add the prime to my kit/replace the 50 f1.8 II).

The next Canon lens that I want is a full frame 16-35II or 17-40 equivalent that doesn't suck. A 14-24 won't suit me as the curved front lens is too hard to protect or use filters with.

Yeah, the next Canon lens I want don't exist right now.

Sucks.
