What about an ultrawide for FF with IS. Come on, now!

+1

About 16-35 f2.8 IS or 16-35 f4 IS...same IQ as Nik 14-24 or better  ::)

A 14-24 or 12-24 for FF would be very welcome! An F/3.5 F/4.0 would do for nightscapes at high ISOs.

Personally, and I don't know if this is possible; after taking a look at what I've used for landscape shots for the last few years I'd want this:
*throw any ideas of f/2.8 overboard, make this a no compromises slow-shooting style landscape lens, tripod almost required, skimping on speed would probably bring the price down..
*zoom range, nice to have, but not a priority, being able to slightly change framing is ok.
*14 or 16 mm FF equivalent..

mind you I've been shooting landscapes primarily with a Tokina 12-24 f/4

I'd love something that is tuned especially towards being sharp from f/8 and as low as possible.. f/16 yes please... (and yes I suppose diffraction comes into play here with the design of the aperture and which sensor is behind it etc..)
Must take filters well, preferably stacked ones, like a polarizer and an ND filter combined or PL + square grads..,  oversized front element/filter threads to avoid killing the corners. non-bulbous front element is a given then I suppose.
Big fat focus ring with lots of throw, AF? not required..
Or going one beyond; what about integrated ND filters; swing into place or drop ins?

just my two cents..

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.

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.
