A new 100-400mm or similar range is needed as there are no great zoom lens with the same range that are amazing, except the 200-400 ;). Would love to see it release this year along side the 7d mark ii.

So since 2014 is supposed to be the year of the lens, I figured would put out a list of my "Dream" lenses and try a poll to see which ones would be the most exciting to people. I tried to think of lenses that would be feasible, no 20-2000mm F2.8 lenses allowed.  Since Canon isn't giving us much fodder yet for the rumor mill on the lenses, let's make a little noise of our own.

As for me, my top lenses on my lust list would be a 12-14mm F4 EF, and a 50mm F2.0 Macro IS.  What are your lust list lenses?
My choice would be a good border to border 50mm at its widest apperture and the 12-24mm
Body: 5DIII. Prime Lenses: 15mm f2.8, 100mm f2.8L IS, 35mm f2 IS, Extender EF 2X III.
Zoom Lenses: 16-35mm f4L IS, 24-70mm f2.8L, 70-200mm f2.8L IS II. Others: Flash 580EX II, 270EX II & MR-14EX II

Canon really should replace the oldest lens in ef lineup. Also I would like to see new 400mm f/4 is and 500mm f/5.6 is added to super tele lens lineup. I know a lot of birders who would like to add those lenses in their bags.

I'd be glad to see a new 50 but I'd be excited for a 12-24 f/whatever.

I'm waiting for an EF 50 f1.4 USM IS followed be an EF 85 f2 USM IS.  The 35 f2 IS needs a couple big brothers.

Canon should launch as soon as possible:

50mm F1.8 IS STM (for shooting compact, and video) ::)
50mm F1.4 IS USM (without LOCAS, or Sigma will dominate the market) :-X
85mm F1.8 IS USM (no purple fringing, please) :-\
100mm F2 IS USM (priced below 135mm) 8)

I'm excited for that rumored tilt-shift macro lens! I shoot a lot of product photography, so it sounds pretty interesting.

Would love a fast zoom that doesn't exhibit the crazy coma of the 16-35 F2.8 or 24mm 1.4 .  I'd buy one in a flash - currently using the Samyang lenses in that range for countryside nightscapes.

For my cheapskate butt, I'd like to see an "inexpensive" 200-400 F4, somewhere around the $2,000 USD or under range.    I know....it's wishful thinking.
What I do today is important because I am exchanging a day of my life for it.

I wish Canon would make an 85/1.4 that doesn't cost as much as the 85/1.2L, focuses at usual USM speeds, and is perfectly usable wide open.
It is not an impossible wish, Nikon and Sigma already have it, and Sigma is reportedly bringing out another one. However, I am worried Canon will go the 85/1.8 IS route if they see that as a more profitable market.

The current 400mm DO f4.0 does seem really costly for that extra half stop over the 5.6 - I'm not convinced that Canon will see fit to replace either of the "cheapo" 300/400mm lenses and just say that the new 100-400mm whenever it comes out is the replacement - a 500mm f5.6 IS sounds interesting though...    That might just work with screw on filters, but a drop in one would be pretty cool...   Get the price under £2000 ? ;-)

Bah!
I missed that I could vote for two. Oh well, I did vote for the EF 12-24/4, and I wouldn't cry too much if that even came out as f/2.8. The other lens I could long for in that selection would be an EF 50/1.2.
Yesterday I tried to toss an egg on someone against the wind. Today the yolk's on me.

This is a trend that I have observed in India with regard to wildlife/Bird Photographers. They always get a crop sensor body (EOS XXXD/XXD/7D) with 300mm f/4 +1.4x TC or 400mm f/5.6 or 100-400mm lens. If they have some extra money they will get a used 500mm f/4L Mk 1(its cheaper than new 300mm f/2.8). There is a big gap right now between the 400mm f/5.6 to 300mm f/2.8L. When I talked with some of the guys they said they wouldn't mind a 400mm f/4 with 1.4x TC or a 500mm f/5.6L lens in their bags as they can save for a lens that costs around 250000INR(~4000US$). Currently in here those 3 cheapest super tele lens are the highest selling lenses with a lot of photographers.

Just check http://www.indianaturewatch.net/ (this is the site where highest number of wildlife related photos from India are uploaded) for how many photos are taken using 300/400/100-400.
