My wish list would be:
35 f1.4L II (assuming it evebr come out)
70-200 f2.8L IS II
TS-E 24 f3.5L II

...and some $$$ to pay for all of it!

The TS-E 24 f3.5L II is a great lens - a really good 24mm plus you can use tilt and shift
70-200f2.8 IS II is well worth getting

Me - I just want a 200 f2 to replace the 200 f2.8  8)

I agree with you that the 70-200mm f2.8L IS II is worth getting!  It is no longer on my wish list since I ordered it 8)!
1DX, 24mm f1.4L II, 35mm f1.4L, 50mm f1.2L, 85mm f1.2L II, 135mm f2L, 24-70mm f2.8L II, 70-200mm f2.8L IS II :  D800, D4, and a whole bunch of Nikon lenses

Are you asking which lenses we would like to have, but Canon does not make?  or is it which lenses we are missing from the canon catalogue?

I've a pretty broad selection, so I'm not really wanting any of the existing lenses enough to actually pay for them.

I'd like to have a more light sensitive body, like the 1D X. 

In terms of missing lenses in Canon's lineup, I don't see any gaping holes in the focal lengths, they are well overlapped by the many zooms and primes.  Some updates of the older primes might be in order.

If there is a weakness, its in ultra wide prime lenses, I'd consider replacing my Tokina 17mm f/3.5 prime with a 17mm f/1.8 or f/2 or even f/2.8 prime.  The TS-E 17mm is a fantastic lens, but my vision does not let me manually focus.

 I'm waiting for updated 50mm lenses (mostly a better build version of the 1.4) - or alternatively a EF remake of the old FD 55mm.

I'd also like an EF version of the old FD 500 f/8 reflex. AF or non-AF doesn't matter.

Other than those nice-to-haves the Canon EF line up of lenses is great and the main reason why I remained loyal to Canon when going digital.
5DII - 50L - 135L - 200 2.8L - 24-105 - 580EXII - 430EXII - FD 500/8 - AE1-p - bag full of FD lenses

"missing in the lineup" to me says something that doesn't exist, so not updating existing lenses.

I'm missing:
EFs 11 f/2
EFs 28/30/35 f/1.4/1.6/1.8 (anything small and sharp, Zeiss/Samyang IQ in nifty-fifty-sized case)
EF 85 f/1.4 nonL
EF 100/135 f/1.8L would be nice but i wouldn't afford it
EF 500/600 f/5.6 (with or without IS, just make it light and affordable)
EF 12-24 f/4 (or f/2.8, but it'd cost more)
EF 40-150 f/2.8 (the portrait zoom)
EF 70-140 f/2 (the ultimate portrait zoom)
EF 200-400 1.4x (According to Canon Australia this does not exist "Canon is intending to design such a product.  If they are successful a further announcement will follow"
EF 3/400-6/7/800 f/5.6
Too much gear, too little space.

EF 50 1.4L IS USM (should have excellent IQ wide open)

This is something I'm interested in too... though for me, even a f1.8 would be fine - as a f1.8 would be smaller and cheaper than a f1.4 lens

Incorporating IS is not a deal breaker - though I agree it would be sweet (but again, would add to cost). I agree - needs to have excellent IQ wide open - eg sharp, contrasty, smooth bokeh (9 rounded blades), true ring USM AF and good build quality.

So for me, a Canon 50mm f1.8 III USM ... or a Canon 50mm f1.4 II USM (if that latter not too expensive, and IS an option - again determining weight / cost).

I'm not a brand-fanatic. What I do appreciate is using my 7D and 350D cameras along with a host of lenses & many accessories to capture quality photos, and share with friends.
