At CR1 level, you can say or think anything!

Whatever it is, I predict they'll call it the Isaac Newton Super Chief Interstellar Sky Assembler.

I was thinking Luxury Art Dynamic Image Digital Aperture

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

A new-and-improved 100-400?

This lens is loooong overdue and would likely sell like hotcakes, as did the current version.  I was recently looking at Nikon and they have a new improved version of their 80-400 and the reviews are off-the-charts positive.  The improved Canon would need zoom ring instead of push pull and preferably start at 80mm instead of 100mm to match Sigma and Nikon.

14-24 f/2.8, 16-50 f/4 IS, 400 f/5.6 IS or 100-400 replacement....

Any (or all) of those would be welcome in my eyes. :)

A new wide, please; After that there'll be lots of 16-35s for sale and I can get one without breaking the bank.

...Who am I kidding, I'm no good at not buying the latest-and-greatest.  :o

A big lens announcement would be a 1200F5.6 lens...... But I'll settle for an updated 400F5.6, it would be a lot easier to carry.

For such a 'big 'ens' I'd expect the announcement to be 'small', aimed mostly at professionals that might actually use this niche product.

If it is a significant lens, I'd think it is something coveted by many photographers, such as the 100-400 shown at the start of this thread, or maybe a new 50L. Somehow I think a 35L is not significant enough.

So based on the original info I'd say if anything is anounced, it's an 'L' telezoom, normal prime or quite possibly a WA zoom with a new range.
5D3, 5D2, NEX-6 | SY14mm f/2.8, Ʃ20mm f/1.8, 24mm f/2.8, 35mm f/2, Ʃ35mm f/1.4A, 50mm f/1.8 I, Ʃ50mm f/1.4 EX, 100mm f/2.8L Macro, 17-40L, 24-105L, 70-200 f/2.8L IS II, 1.4x II, 70-300L, 100-400L | E-mount: SY12mm f/2, Ʃ19mm & 30mm f/2.8 EX DN, 16-50 & 55-210 OSS | 2x FT-QL, AE-1P, FD(n) & FL primes

12-24mm f2.8L would be the important add-on to their lineup. Updates for the 35 f1.4L, 50 f1.2L and 85 f1.2L  would be most welcome and within their zoom portfolio, I would love to see a new version of the 100-400.

May be a new version of the canon 35 or 135L. They are of the oldest lens.

Maybe the  "Canon EF 14-24mm f/2.8 Pro Optical System"

51mm f/0.94

Their 50mm 1.4 needs an AF update so badly is isn't even funny so maybe a 50 f/1.4 Mark II with true USM.

Is this Canon US ?  EF-M 11-22mm maybe ;-)

In all seriousness, I wouldn't be surprised if this is a EF-M 11-22mm and another EF-M - perhaps 55-200mm compact tele zoom or an EF-M 18-135mm

A repkacement 100-400 or even 200-400mm f5.6 IS would be a nice cheapie L !  I'm seriously reluctant to grab a 100-400 at the moment given I'm managing with the 70-300 non L

A 400mm 5.6 with IS would be nice.

+1 if they could keep it to under $1400

WEX Photographic (the online retailer of the year since 2002 here in the UK)  are offering 10% discount to existing customer on top of the £170 cashback (rebate) offered by Canon on the 16-35mm f2.8 L MkII USM.  Is this a sign that the announcement is for the previously rumored 16-50mm  L ?.  It's the only lens with the double discount !.
