Where the Canon range falls really short is wide angle primes for EF-S. That was part of my justification for spending out on a 6D. If I could not have afforded that, I would have gone for Nikon or Pentax.

There is the 14L, but it's daft to invest that money and carry that weight just to get 22mm equivalent. That's how I told myself that the more costly 6D was a bargain.

Depending on your goals/needs, FF can be cheaper.  Consider that 85mm f/1.2 on APS-C is equivalent to 135mm f/2 on FF, and compare the cost of the lenses.
EOS 1D X, EOS M2, lots of lenses

I would like to see a new 17-85 f4 IS STM come out. If it still had 67mm filter thread, all the better. If they fixed the
Chroma aberation problem and the tape that wears out then Canon would be on to something. 17-85 is a nice zoom range on APS-C.

except for the STM and filter thread parts; I thought this was the 15-85 f/3.5-5.6 USM IS ?
that said, the 17-85 is ok, build quality is not quite up there, but nice as a travel lens and can be had very cheaply now..

I thought I would be the only one to see that, although I hadn't thought of portrait lenses.

Of course it doesn't apply to every scenario.
