Without reading the whole thread: If this is a new source let's see what "regular" sources will come up with in the next days. As it is stated, that Canon doesn't hold press events just for lenses, either there won't materialize anything, or we will see a big surprise... what if Canon changed plans and announces a yet to be released high MP body? Maybe early 2014, as similar to the 1Dx back then?
30D, EF-S 10-22/ 5DIII, 16-35 F/2.8 L USM II, 28 F/2.8, 50 F/1.4, 85 F/1.8, 70-200 F/2.8 classic,

A new 100-400 finally ? why not...

Wow 2014 could be a great year for wildlife and sport shooters if it's true with a possible 7D mark II and the rumors of Sigma working on its new generation of big lens

 ;D :) ;)

This would be my bet....
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. :)
I'd definitely be in the market for the 14-24, with a 400/5.6IS and/or 100-400.

My "left-field guess" is a TS-E 100 f4L Macro, give or take a few millimetres focal length and a bit on aperture.  This was rumored a while ago.

And while I'm speculating I'll add an "outside the box" rank outside option - a medium format lens development announcement with a MF-EF adapter.  This would fit the unusual announcement for a lens only, but I'll expect a body announcement instead.

The four most-needed lenses are, IMHO:

100-400L II which could also replace the 300/4 and 400/5.6.
17-55/2.8 IS updated to 15-60/2.8L IS (EF-S).
24-70/2.8 needs IS.
16-35/2.8L II needs an update of some sort to be sharp in the corners.  Personally I think a 12-24/4 makes more sense than a 14-24/2.8.  This would be consistent with the 8-15/4 replacing the f/2.8 fisheye prime.

What i really would like is a 400 f/5.6 L with IS and weather sealing. I already have the 70-200 and 300 both f/4 IS and i only need that one...

Or a 500 f/5.6 L IS but it will never happen, it would be a foolish decision in terms of marketing !

I would say that a 'big' lens announcement would be about a lens many people wish for and that is currently not yet part of the lens family. That could be 14-24 f/2.8 fitting the 24-70 f/2.8 II
But it is only an announcement. Availability could be september 2014 ......

After releasing the 24-70ii and the 200-400 Canon wouldn't want to deprive rumor sites of the longest running non-existent lens!

But on the other hand side, the rumor was that they'd tackle the 100-400L after their super-extra-mega-tele is in production, and as that's really the case now it could actually happen...

Would a replacement 100-400 be a "big" announcement? Replacing a lens with a tweaked version doesn't strike me as being a big deal.

It will be for Canon after they calculated the price and the revenue they expect :-> ... and I understand this lens is still extremely popular. The only other "big" missing lens seems to be a 14-24-like pro uwa.

My guess is a 50mm 1.8 or 2.0 with IS and maybe a new 85 also with IS.
7D - BG
3 Ls - 1 EF - 2 EF-s - 2 M42s
430EX II - YN560-III

I doubt they would have a big even just to announce one lens. More like one lens with some new, or new to the L series technology such as STM or a new IS system.




Of course, someone could just have their wires crossed and the event is for something else too which makes it bigger.
Some cameras… With Canon written on them. Oh, and some lenses… Also with Canon written on them. Oh, and a shiny camera with Fuji written on it too...

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

A lot of lenses are even older : the 50mm f2.5 Compact Macro and 135mm f2.8 Soft Focus (1987), 50 f1.8 II (1990), 100 f2, 45mm and 90mm TS-E (1991), 20mm f2.8 and 85 f1.8 (1992), 50mm f1.4 and 400mm f5.6 (1993) and 28mm f1.8 (1995).

The 35mm f1.4 would nevertheless need a refresh (improved IQ and weather sealing), the 135mm f2 could use  weather sealing and IS, as well as the 400mm f5.6.

I am more thinking of 45mm and 90mm TS-E (100mm f3.5 L Macro TS-E) and wide zooms (14-24mm and 16-50mm IS).

I would love to see a 180mm Macro II, sealed and stabilised, but I doubt it will happen.

Nah, the real new lens is the 1200mm full frame f4 with IS,  and a EF-S/EF-M option.

Plus a change away from "white" to "black" lens...
