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.
They are practically doing it for us their valued customers!
The longer we wait the greater the satisfaction  ;D

A 35-70 2 IS L is crazy, the new 24-70 ii is 2400 dollars, this going to be wortha hell of a lot. And the only is lens with f2 is the 200mm f2. Building this lens would exterminate the 24-70 ii.

I did however hear a couple rumors from my local camera store who coordinates with canon, and actually shared with me the official 6d specs before it was announced. They say there is a new 2.8 ef-s is zoom that will update the 17-55. It will have different focal length, and a better is motor. Also, ther is a rumored 24-105 replacement. It will have a similar hybrid is system like the 100mm macro, a 3.5/4 aperture, and a 20/24/35-105/110/120. All options are being considered. Canon is actually working on a lot of these rumors, especially the 14-24 to go with the 3d x, and everything else is going to be launched with the new Aps-c line, a new sensor with hybrid af will be in the (T5i, 70d, and the 7d ii, and there is a rumored special 1.7-1.8x sensor supposed to be in the "pro wildlife" dslr. This is like the Arab spring of canon dslrs. New ef-s STM lenses are to accompany them, and some new ef primes are rumored to. I did not hear anything about when we will see some new l zooms. (with the 14-24 excepted)

I'm confused, what lens is supposed to fill the 17-40's place, I bet canon would add is, but I don't think they'd bump it up to 50-60mm?

probably not. I think its a really good focal length at a really good price. I doubt Canon will update it/replace it for awhile. It is a very widely used lens, and at the cheapesed L glass available, it is quite popular. Why would canon replace and raise the price of a lens that doesent have much room for improvement and is already getting them so much revenue? I guess a guy can hope, though!
Rebel T3, EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM, EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6, EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6, EF 50mm f/1.8, 430EX II, Nikon EL 2, Assorted Nikkor primes

If it is for film-makers, make it manual, super sharp wide open, and nearly no breathing. ... and a stable image while rack focusing.

For anything else most of us have already glass with lower F stops. Having said that, I would love to have the double f stop of the 1/1.2, but 1/1.4 is fine, 1/2.0 would be the next, and half of the light performance, which makes not really sense to have a prime then (for my personal needs of course, using 1/2.8 zooms).

But I guess, this wish plays too much into the area of the new Cine-lenses which are $4,990 for the T 1/1.3 50mm.

Why is it that so many people want an EF 24-70mm lens with IS ?

There's been reports of QC issues with the current EF 24-70mm (focusing problems, etc.).

Also, an H-IS version of this mid-range zoom would give you more control in low-light situations.

Two more reasons:
1-If it was H-IS, it would be even better for video, and video seems to be big for Canon (and growing for that matter).

2-Some people like to use that nice sharp lens stopped down sometimes (say for landscape), but they don't always have a tripod (happens to me all the time); IS could be really handy in a situation like that.  It is basically taking one of the most used lenses, and giving it one more tool.

But the 24-70 is a portrait lens, canon wants pros to invest in other gear. And if you really want to stop down for landscapes, you will use a tripod, or otherwise use flash. Get the 24-70 f4 is if the is, and stopped down sharpness is important. This lens and the 85mm 1.2 are some of the lenses that I wished they didn't put on aperture blades, if you need to stop down, there is an alternative.

If they could make the same 135mm f2 with IS, I would be more than satisfied, I'm afraid the extra 1/3 of stop of a 1.8 version would only add weight, bulk, a larger filter size and 3 times the price. The new 135mm f2 IS when it comes will likely sell for 1899$ anyway.

Zeiss already make's a 135 F/1.8. It should be no big deal for canon.  :P

I guess it's no big deal, after all Nikon even had a 300mm f2 in the past; I just wonder if the extra 1/3 stop would justify all the negatives (weight, bulk, filter size, price).

If canon made a 300mm F/2L IS USM, that would also be in this list of wanted rumored lenses.  ;D

That Zeiss 135mm F1.8 is just stunning.
