IMHO, wide & ultra-wide lenses, and good cheap wide (<50mm) primes.

Considering Canon just entered the cinema camera & lenses business, and therefore would probably invest R&D resources in developing lenses for those, I wouldn't expect much news in the DSLR lenses market.

[OK, some of the cinema lens designs might leak into the DSLR market, but - as noted - those cover APS-C sensors, I guess any such lenses would be EF-S.]

something like 24-130 2.8

Last time I do shoot an indoor event, im direct in front of the stage, so i need 24, but also long end. 70mm to less
105mm are ok, but can be more. So 24-70 it to short. 24-105 only f4.

But if I go for an 1Dx I can use my 24-105 even in low light :-D

Top priorities:
New 50/1.4 (or a much better 50/1.2L)
and a 500/5.6 cheaper and lighter than the current 500/4

...yes, and together with a 300 f/4 IS II (mainly for an updated IS).

PS: How much would a 400 f/4 (non-DO) cost, as much as a 200 f/2?

Are we talking about dream lenses or what?

Anyway, what I'd really love would be to have the quality of lenses such the 50 1.2 and others packed in smaller bodies.
I know it's optically impossible or hard for nowadays tech, but imagine the quality and all the rest of a superb lens in the body of i.e. a 35 f2 body....that'd ridicolous.
It would be my dream as for a streetphotographer weight metters.
I know, i could go the leica way, but hey...I need to live with moneys ahah.

All in all I'd love more pocketability in the L prime lenses around..50 1.2 is already near...if just the 35 1.4 II would arrive and would be smaller, more compact lens...it'd be awesome!

EDIT: that's why I went the non L lenses prime way....and that's what I'm really missing in the line up, the "pockability" (more of a dream than reality as of now)

I'd rather have the 100-400L II :)

To stretch the ideas a bit, roughly speaking the faster the lens the shorter the zoom ratio. E.g. f/2.8 lenses are typically around 3x, whereas at f/6.3 I believe the SLR lens record stands at 15x! And primes of course tend to be fastest but don't zoom... I wonder if there's room for some ultra-fast short zooms. For example, today I would have loved a hypothetical 85-135 f/2L over the 135/2L and 85/1.8 combo I had.
Canon 1D, 300D IR, 450D full spectrum, 600D, 5D2, 7D, EF 35/2, 50/1.8, 85/1.8, 135/2+SF, 70-300L, 100-400L
EF-S 15-85, TS-E 24, MP-E 65, Zeiss 50/2 macro, Sigma 150 macro, 120-300/2.8 OS, Samyang 8mm fisheye

I currently have the 50mm f1.4, Tamron 17-50mm f2.8 (non VC), and 70-200 f4L (shooting with a 7D).

I think next up will be upgrading the 70-200 to either the f4L IS, or possibly the 70-300 f4-5.6L IS.

I also desperately want the 100mm f2.8L IS macro, because while the 70-200 with extension tubes is functional, it's anything but quick and easy.

Further down the line, an ultra-wide of some variety and a wider fast prime would round things out nicely.

Haha, I'm missing everything. All I have is my 18-135mm on my 60D. There are a few lenses that I really would like to get in the future when I'm not so crap on money. 17-55 2.8 is definitely one I'd like to have. As well as a nice wide angle for landscapes. I also want a fisheye one day. I think it would be fun to experiment with when not taking other photos.

I know that equipment isn't everything, but lately I've been getting so discouraged with not being able to take the photos I'd like to take.
