I would rather have a 10-600 f/2 perfectly alligned for an APS-C, weighing not more than 500 gram, which has perfect image quality, no vingetting or CA at all, fully sharp wide open, and is delivered as a kit lens.

Sold seperately for under $1000.

Likelyness it is going to happen? About the same as other suggestions made here  :D

You forgot it also needs to be a pancake :-)
You also forgot that it has to have IS, tilt, shift and macro capabilities too  ;D

Not a word anymore about the 35 L II?

I think Sigma has that covered  ;)

Yeah, I actually thought the new Siggy looked cool, they've taken a big step, by the looks of it at least. I couldn't really locate if it was weathersealed or not.

What you guys think, does it top the current 35 L? Af and wideopen performance are my biggest points.

The point for me is not whether it is a little better or worse than its Canon equivalent. It is a matter of future compatibility. I have a Tokina ATX28-70 f/2.8 and a Sigma 14mm that are nice paper weights.
They cannot be upgraded for the digital Canons. The Sigma works only fully open which is next to useless and the Tokina had ceased working since the advent of Canon 50E  !!! (It works though with my EOS1n camera!).
Both companies responded that they cannot upgrade their lenses. Now, my version 1 Canon EF50mm 1.8 still works!
There is a single exception to

I thought that was the idea with new firmware docking... but I can't say it is a compatibility problem that 30 year old lenses from thirdparty doesn't work with digital. It's not that long ago Canon's own flashes bought can't be used with digital.

But I made an exception after all! I bought a Zeiss 21mm 2.8. But that's it!

Tokina was not 30 years old. I bought it in 1993 and it was useless in 1996 with my 50E!

Old Canon flashes do not work but all old Canon lenses do work! 35mm L by the way is a very old lens which works OK! Ofcourse someone is free to take chances especially when the price is much better!

Finally someone else who still has a 50 f1.8 mk1!  I originally bought mine when the EOS 1 was launched back in 1989 (?)  :o

Don't you long for the days when the lenses were so much cheaper? I had gotten the EF28mm f/2.8 for around 100$ new. Now they had to do something to get money even from these lenses. They put IS on 24 and 28 and raised the price insanely as if they aren't just 2.8 lenses...

I would be a happy camper if they could just start delivering the new 600 that has been out for awhile....I have had mine on order for awhile now and not really able to get much information on why they are taking so long to get them in circulation.
