I'm so hoping for the rumored 50mm 1.8 IS to appear, if it's like the 24/28/35 IS lenses I'll be happy. Also wouldn't mind an updated 85mm 1.8 (IS??).

The 100-400 update was meant to be announced after the 200-400 started shipping, wasn't it? That's one that sounds like it was delayed.

I reckon the 35mm 1.4 II was also delayed and is also on the horizon. Possibly those 45 and 90mm TS lenses and hopefully something at the wide end will also appear soon too!

Finally, something worth getting out of bed for!  :D 
Move along nothing to see here!

Everyone thus far has forgotten to include the 16-50/L IS that was meant for this year:

2010: http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?topic=16.0 EF 16-50 f/4L H-IS
2013: http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?topic=15455.0 14-24 f/2.8L, EF 16-50 f/4L IS

2012: http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?topic=7362.0 14-24 after the 200-400.

I hope the above CR2 rumors (except for the 2010 reference) come true. Some awesome ultrawide FF zoom lenses are what Canonites need now: 14-24 f/2.8 and 16-50 f/4.

I give somewhat more weight to a CR2 rumour than a CR1 (as should be!)

If there is a rumour of 'lots of new lenses coming in 2014' (from Canon) - that gets me mildly excited.

Looking forward to a Canon EF 50mm USM being one of them - hopefully with aperture between f/1.4 & f/2 and IS to boot!  IQ to be very good, wide open.

Let's see.  That would round out my lens arsenal nicely.

I appreciate that others might want the 14-24mm f/2.8 (I have the Sigma 8-16mm for my 7D, which is great, high quality IQ - sharp & plenty of contrast corner to corner), etc

Looking forward to a CR3 on this one end of 2013 / early 2014... hopefully!  Please please please Canon provide us with a great 50mm fast prime... similar to the 35mm f/2 USM IS.....

Paul
I appreciate using my 7D and 350D cameras along with a host of lenses & many accessories to capture quality photos, and share with friends.

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.

Who wouldn't ? :) I'd be happy with 18mm or 21mm f5.6 and be done with it!

Bring out the 14-24 and be done with it.

That's reqasonnably the only one I'd be in the market for...except if some "Canon noctilux"was in the pipeline...but with that trend of "IS + reduced aperture" lenses... :(

Wouldn't be very good at AF with that narrow an aperture. Remember the centre AF point on the pro camera bodies and some prosumer ones becomes a diagonally cross type point at f/2.8. Then there's viewfinder brightness and the fact the f/5.6 is a bit S___ on crop and you can see why most primes and most lenses in general (and excl superteles) aren't made with narrow apertures.

I think f/2.8 is a decent compromise and you can see that trend with the 24 and 28mm IS primes. They have very good corner sharpness too.

To summarise:
14-24L
16-50L
35/1.4
45 TS/E
50/1.8
85/1.8
90/2.8 TS/E
135/2
... makes 8 lenses. No big zooms. I wonder if someone just went through and counted up all of the patent and other rumors for Canon this year and created a new rumor?

I like the list above. Makes a lot of sense. :)

14-24 would interst np e a lot

Not mentioned is 100-400 replacement as well as long macro (180 replacement)

I would be surprised to L versions of both the 14-24 and 16-50.  Latter seems like an odd focal length for an L lens.

Surprised by 16-50 f/4L (~3x zoom) too. But it's a CR2 rumor and sounds like a plausible replacement to 17-40 f/4L (~2.3x zoom). If it's true, I'm in lens heaven! That's all I need when I travel with my FF camera! As long as its price stays below US$2k, I'll be the first in line.

This focal lenght makes much more sense than 16-35 and 17-40 lineup. 14-24 to complete the zoom holy trinity and 16-50 as the holy grail of photojournalism.

You can only speak for yourself. As far as myself is concerned, I think that the logo "Canon" means the foremost quality possible, and the red ring is almost the equivalent of the Holy Grail. You see, there's a reason why they say: You get what you pay for!!!!

ROFLMAO :-)

As long as canon has enough customers like you, we won't get better lenses, reasonable prices or fully comprtitive sensors from them.
