Widest FF zoom lens?  10-24?  Go on, give us a whole 2mm more than Sigma! (and better IQ and hopefully not at L prices, though that would just be wishful thinking of course).

oh AND GIVE US A 100-400mm UPGRADE! (please)

What, no rumours about a 1500mm f5.6 with built in 1.4x converter?  :(
Probably a global market of less than 10, but I can day dream can't I?  ;D

Funny you should say that, but I heard a mention of a 1400mm f5.6 IS floating around last year.  No built in 1.4x or 2x though. Of course if you can afford it, you can afford the staff to carry it for you and to bring the things closer to you ;)

I think most know what lens I want.

You've made no secret of your desire for a 40mm f/2.8 MkII.
Black or white?

1) Definitely black! Of that there can be no doubt ;-)
2) Internal focusing optics
3) A 2cm wide focus ring that is calibrated to be butter-smooth.
4) Must also include rear-dust gasket and be fully weather sealed with front filter.
5) Less than 40% heavier than the 40mm mk-I

EF with 1.4xInt: 100-300mm f/4 ,  500mm f/5.6 L

“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...

Yes and no. A 14-24 zoom would be larger and heavier than the 14mm prime and if it were optically equal or superior then it would simply be priced higher than the prime.

How much more than the current price of 14 2.8L II would be enough? The Nikon 14-24 2.8 costs less than that, not more. Even with a higher price it would have a 15-24mm additional range... 14 2.8 II would still be redundant...

Not "year of the new sensors"? :P lol
(like whole new manufacturing process and so on)

LOL...If Duffman was a Canon exec:

"New...feelings sensors...brewing in Duffman Canon! What...would Jesus Sony do?"

ROFL! Gold!  ;D

Looks like Canon´s business development department reads Canonruomors.com after all :)

If this is true, then I'm among those who want more "budget high quality lenses" for EOS M. :)

"Dear Santa Canon, for 2014 we need at least some small and light telephoto zoom like "EF-M 55-250/4-5.6 IS STM". Please, make it as good as EF-M 11-22 you brought us this year (my impression so far is that it behaves better in the corners than both EF-S 10-22 and EF 17-40, thank you!). Or, if you have other plans to make a tiny lens called "EF-M 70-200/2.8 IS"-- I'm not the one who will object..."
G7 | EOS M | 400D | 6D
EF: 50/1.8 II | 17-40 | 24-105 | 70-300DO / EF-S: 10-22 | 18-55 | 18-55 IS | Sigma 30/1.4 (old one) / EF-M: 11-22 | 18-55 | 22
I also own few Canon flashes, remotes, blends, bags, cases (including waterproof one) and even batteries! :)

Cool.... but then we would have a debate over if we should put a 270mm filter on the lens to protect it.
