The rumors need to start materialising as lenses. The newer cameras (before we even get to 45 or 85MP as been rumored here) such as the 6d show up the problems of the EF-17-40mm f4L,  EF24-105mm f4L both of which have pronouced chromatic abberations at 17mm and 24mm respectively. As sensors improve the faults of lenses masked at 8, 10, 12 or 18MP now show up and this undermines the system ability to produce great results. Sigma have shown improvement are possible (so has Zeiss at a price) and still remain competitive to Canon pricing.

A 24-105 II L really would be nice, especially mated with a 100-400 II L combo. Very versatile!

+1 for the 24-105L II lens. This is the most versatile lens Canon makes.

Also, Canon- a 14-24 2.8 for under $2500 please.

The Canon Camera Museum tech report for the EOS-M 55-200mm lens shows 5 lens in the family.  http://www.canon.com/camera-museum/tech/report/2014/08/

Canon already has an EF 24mm f/2.8 IS USM Full Frame lens.

Canon already has an EF-M 22mm f/2 STM lens for their Mirrorless APS-C camera.

Wouldn't it make more sense to make an EF-S 22mm f/2 STM for their non-mirrorless APS-C cameras.

BTW 24mm = 38mm FF and 22mm = 35mm FF

An EF-S 22mm f/2 STM lens would be a good reason to replace my heavy EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM with a light EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM  :)

The first one on the left is a EF to EF-M adapter. Therefore there are only 4 EF-M mount lens.

I feel like the most anticipated, mainstream lenses that are rumored are the least likely to come out, while lenses that people say "wtf?" to (ie: the new cheaper 24-105 non L which costs just $100 less than what white box 24-105 f/4L lenses are currently going for) are likely to continue to pop up.

Maybe I'm just losing hope.  I've been following this site much longer than I've been a forum member and I don't understand why Canon is so reluctant to develop/release lenses that they should know their customer base keeps hoping for.

I also can not understand why Canon is not updating its popular lenses, e.g 50 mm 1.4, 50 mm 1.2, 100-400 mm and others. Now Canon released USD 7000 (in Europe such lenses cost GPB 7,000). I and many other photographers will never have such lenses. However, Sigma and Tamron are able to release very high quality and affordable lenses. I think that Canon will have to revise its lens pricing strategy. Why we should pay for marginally better quality lenses for double price

Still disappointed that the 35/1.4L, 135/2L, 180/3.5L Macro and 400/5.6L are not replaced yet.
Visit my Flickr, Facebook & 500px and see my photos. :)

I do not find the EF-S 10-22mm really heavy. But a 22mm with large aperture would be useful for IQ (better CA control) and low light conditions (inside a church, night architecture, handheld use...)
