Any idea on Canon's timeline for a parent to turn into a real product? I am really looking forward for the 85mm IS

Next two years, one would think.

The non-L IS refreshes are in pairs, like the originals from the '90s:

24 / 28 have similar size, filter diameter, etc.
35 / 50 have similar size, filter diameter, etc.
85 / 100 (the F/2 -- not the two macros) have similar size, filter diameter, etc.

So I see the 85mm and 100mm non-L IS refreshes to be released together.

The only mystery is why the 50 non-L IS is taking so long.  One would have expected that one with the release of the 35mm.

Or ... three or four  :)
But rest assured that in five or six there will be a CR2 for all three missing lenses: 50 IS,85 IS,100 IS  ;D

I believe Canon must answer in the 50 segment soon or Sigma could legitimately scoop some bread and butter Canon pros. 

Consider:  the buzz for the Sigma 50 Art is deafening, and if it's as good as billed and priced correctly, it could scoop both the (a) often-shooting-wide-aperture-but-still-wanting-AF camp (using the 50L) and I-need-a-sharp-corner-to-corner-50 camp (stuck with the trusty old Canon 50 F/1.4).

The overdue Canon 50 F/wedontknow IS is a strong answer to the second group's needs and seems to be the only thing Canon has in the pipeline right now.

I agree and I do not think it is difficult for Canon to do so.

Unless, they are busy working hard for 35mm 1.4L II, 100-400 f/4.5-5.6L IS II, 400 5.6L IS ....  ;D ;D

OK I stop  ;D ;D ;D
