One of the appeals of primes over zooms for me is great IQ in a small light package, which is why I went for the Canon 35 f/2 IS over the Sigma 35 1.4, and I love it.

Sure, I would love more ultra large aperture primes, but usually f/2 is shallow enough on FF, and they will never be able to make a good f/1.2 tele- or ultra-wide lens that is small and light. So I hope for moderate large aperture lenses that are exellent wide open and are small and light, with IS. Oh, and put an "L" on them too.

??  ???

you went for it because it is lighter i guess. sounds a bit as if the sigma is a zoom.  ;)

lol ... good catch, my sloppy writing  8) ... Y, i bought the Canon because it is smaller and lighter. The Sigma is about the same size and weight as my 16-35 2.8L II, so the Canon 35 f/2 IS gives me a small, light option, as well as brighter and sharper (at the expense of flexibility of course).

Please Canon, do not forget the 50mm IS. But be realistic with prices not to scare buyers. A 50 F1.8 IS should not cost more than $ 400, and a 50mm F1.4 IS should not cost more than $ 600. I'm just warning you not to run aground on the shelves. 8)

My wild guesses...

I think more EF-S lenses with STM (18-200mm, 15/17-200mm, 17-55mm, ...) is a safe bet. Maybe an 18-270mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM to compete with the Tamron.

The EF 35mm f/1.4 II - it's old, and the Sigma 35mm f/1.4 is gives it a very good fight.

The TS-E lenses are waiting for an upgrade, so TS-E 45mm mkII + either TS-E 90mm mkII or 135mm (near macro?)

A new ultra wide lens, e.g. 14-24mm or 16-35mm mkIII. Note that the 16-35mm mkII was released ~6 years after the mkI, so there's a precedent for such a quick upgrade.

A 50mm upgrades, maybe 50mm f/2 IS USM + 50mm f/1.4 with proper USM.

Maybe a 20mm with better IQ to give APS-C cameras a good 35mm equivalent?

Interesting. This does not bode well for holiday sales. I was contemplating an end-of-year purchase, but this makes me want to wait.

I might guess Canon has given up on this year and is trying to stunt sales of competitor lenses for the holiday shopping season.

How about a 50mm that is actually worth buying?  I'd love a 50L 1.4.  No front/back focus issues, sharp wide open, and ring USM.  I'd take it with or without IS.

Hmmm...   What would I like to see and would buy...

EF-M 15-85mm or EF-M 18-135mm (both with 4 stop IS)
EF 20-135mm f4.0 IS L < My ideal 6D walkabout &
EF 200-400mm f4.0-5.6 IS L (twist not pump) < My ideal 6D big white tele

What could come and I'd think about

EF 14-24mm f2.8 L
EF 24-105mm f4.0 IS II L < Preferably with 82mm filter
EF 100-400mm IS II L < Also preferably with 82mm filter

What I expect to see and would be less willing to buy...

EF 35mm f1.4 II L
EF 50mm f1.8 IS
EF 85mm f2.0 IS
EF 135mm f2.0 IS > with the 200mm quietly dropped
EF 300mm f4.0 IS L
EF 400mm f5.6 IS L
45mm & 90mm tilt shifts replaced

Wild cards ?

How about a 600mm or 800mm with built in 1.4x extender or a 50mm f1.0/0.95 or an autofocus lensbaby style lens ?

Dream on ;-)

for EF-S
EF-S 18-55/3.5-5.6 IS Mk. III
EF-S 18-200/3.5-5.6 IS Mk. II
The 18-55 already got updated with STM.

Quote
for EF, Non-L
EF 58/1.4 IS @ USD/€ 1,190
EF 50/1.8 IS @ USD/€ 790
I could see the 50mm f/1.8 IS happening; not sure I see a 2nd 50mm update though. It does stand to reason that they may add IS to their 85mm or 135mm non-L lens.

They could also update the 70-300mm lens with STM.

Quote
EF-L
EOS 70-200/4 L IS Mk. II @ USD/€ 1,790
Why that lens? Seems to me it's already one of their sharpest and most affordable L lenses. If anything, I could see them dropping the non-IS f/4 lens, to try and push sales toward other lenses.

35L and 135L are my guesses for L updates

I think you will see a 100-400mm replacement before a 400mm f5.6.  Canon sells about 10x as many of zoom compared to the prime.

35L II
135L II
800L II
200/4L Macro IS
TS-E 45/2.8L
TS-E 90/2.8L

50/1.8 IS

...and a couple of consumer-grade zooms with STM, can't have enough of those...

I think this list reflects a good combination of consumer hope and Canon conservatism, I'd change a few about though.

The biggest difference I would guess would be no 135 MkII but instead a 14-24 f2.8 or at least an updated ultra wide f2.8 with possibly not the same focal lengths as the not widely respected 16-35.

I think the "new" 50 will be an f2 IS, but with a more modest launch price than the other newer non L IS prImes, I think Canon have learnt from the market the pricing of this series and an f2 will make them more money than an f1.8.

I also think the 180 macro update will be more esoteric than a simple 200 IS.

But time will tell......

I'd like to see one high quality prime between 16 and 20mm that is razor sharp from corner to corner when stopped down a little bit and is small and relatively inexpensive. It doesn't have to be fast, but it has to be razor sharp in the extreme corners around f8. Something like a sharper version of the Zeiss 18mm f3.5 with AF would be perfect to me.
