Call Canon and order one.  I hope you know what you are doing, and have the right tools.  Some front elements are just glass, but some must be adjusted to eliminate decentering.

Haven't there been any rumors of new versions of the EF 200/2.8L (preferably with IS) or 300/4L IS? In my opinion they are the lenses I would find most interesting. New supertele lenses are fun to read about, and maybe interesting for the professional users, but I really can't afford that kind of luxury.

The zoom range of the 24-70 sucks. I hope to see it replaced with a f2.8 version of the 24-105mm f4 to allow some focal length overlap in the f/2.8 series of zooms.

No, this is a bad idea. The 24-105 is a compromise optically and a poor performer compared to either of the 24-70 lenses.

What I'd like to see is a portrait zoom lens. Right now for portrait work the 24-70 and the 70-200 don't quite cover the sensible working distances on their own.  Something like a 45-105 f/2.8 would be a super useful lens for those too lazy to swap lenses!

Of course, the 24-70 2.8 on a crop sensor isn't far off this!

The 24-105 F4 is a great all rounder, and I have been using this lens for many years (first the mk1 and more recently the mk2). The 24-70 F2.8 ii is a better lens optically, but even so I find that I use the 24-105 more frequently because its zoom range is better and this makes it a great walkabout lens. Also it has image stabilisation which is useful in certain situations.
When I am looking for the optimum image quality I usually know what I am going to be photographing in advance  so I tend to use prime lenses for this type of work. The 24-70 F2.8 ii is a great lens but it was very expensive and I am starting to ask myself whether I really need it.

I am somewhat surprised that the thought of a 24-105 2.8 is never discussed. I 'm no technical expert but I think this would sell plenty of units, especially with video shooters. Keep the 4.0 as part of kits.
If 24 is too short and optically a challenge, even 35-105 would work.

Tamron has a 28-105 2.8 lens since the film days. By the way it still works (at least a friend's 28-105 2.8 Tamron works with his 6D)
