Widest FF zoom lens: 12-24 L f/2.8 USM
Except 12mm is already being done; they'd have to make it an 11-xx lens to be the widest.

That will be pretty cool. But the lens need to be as sharp as the 14-24 f/2.8 wide-open. If Canon's EF-S 10-22 is much sharper than Nikon's DX 10-24, I don't see why they cannot do the same for FF ultrawide lens.

How come the "Slim Your Wallet" ad shows up more than once in this thread?  Is it subliminal advertising?

God that would be an amazing lens. Give it a nice and close minimum focusing distance. Unless I was doing landscape, this would never leave my camera body. 
My photography equipment goes here, apparently.

Actually, 2010 was going to be the year of the lens.


I followed the link above and the lens list that followed were CR's predictions, not based on any CR2 type of rumors. What it tells us is CR site owner is poor in predictions.  :P

I will not be surprised if 2014 seriously turns out to be the Year of the Lens. Firstly, Canon Imaging needs to improve on their profits and the ILC market is nearly saturated. So, selling more lenses is an option. Secondly, Nikon has nearly caught up with Canon in the lens department, so it's time for Canon to put some distance between themselves and Nikon. Lenses like the widest rectilinear zoom lens and 16-50 f/4L IS will help cement Canon's status as the manufacturer with the widest lens options. Thirdly, the EOS-M fire sale is working (see Amazon and BCNRanking), so it's time for Canon to release more M-mount lenses.

Fine, but this is not a CR2-type rumor, either...   ;)

“Firstly, a new worlds widest full frame zoom lens (nor sure what this could be)”

There is a 16-35 and a new 14-24 or 12-24 has a big overlap so it would compete with the 16-35. What if they figured out a way to make something like a high quality 10-16 for FF?
An addition on the wide end without overlap is commercially probably the best option, and making money is Canons primary goal.

Hey, I like that! EF 10-16 will make a perfect combo with EF 16-50 f/4 IS. Now if the 10-16 lens does not have a bulging front element, that will be even more attractive.

In addition the 14-24 would compete with the expensive 14 2.8L II. Canon wouldn't like that I guess.
In addition 16-35 2.8 could use an improvement at the corners...

Hmmm, unless we saw it happen we would practically consider it as CR0 ...
