I think, canon should make an upgrade to the 35mm 2.0 and make it a 1.8 with USM. I'd buy that thing right away!
and I'd love to see an "affordable" 20mm 1.8 as well.

A crop prime für standard use. But I'm to late now: Zeiss announced the T* 2/25 yet.  :-*

here are som lenses that is faster then 1,2 http://blog.digitalrev.com/2010/08/15/5-fast-50mm-lenses-that-are-worth-selling-a-kidney-for/

Thanks for the info. Out of all the lenses in the list that is faster than 1.2, only the Canon 50mm 1.0L is for DSLR, the rest are for range finder.  The canon 1.0 has been discontinued for the reason stated in the article. the article re-enforce about the difficulty of making a fast 50mm DSLR lnes. Even Nikon made the 1.2 SLR lens in 58mm, not 50mm.

I've often wondered if an EF 35-105 f/2.8L (IS) would be a popular lens.  There are a lot of people who are upgrading from APS-C (and now will be moving from APS-H) to full frame; such a lens could give them the zoom range they're used to.  Also, there are some applications for which 35mm at the wide end is probably enough, but would appreciate the extra 35mm on the long end (press photographers maybe?).  A design starting at 35mm would probably not involve as many optical compromises as one starting at 24mm, so image quality would probably be improved.  The lens would probably be a lot more manageable in size than the 24-105 f/2.8L (IS) that a lot of people seem to dream of.

Yes, that's true. I remember the 80s when 35-70 or 35-135 lenses were very popular. I would like it, particulary in combination with a UWA zoom lens.

For what its worth, there are a few fast m43 lenses.  Eg the Voigtlander 25mm/0.95 and the Noktor 50mm/0.95. These are both comparatively small.  The Noktor is also quite affordable.

Thanks for for head up. However, I cannot find any information on the two 0.95 lenses that you have mentioned in the official importer's site (Camera Quest). Even they exist, they arefor range finder, not FF DSLR.  Also I am not aware of any really fast M43 lens either. Please supply more information. Thanks

The Noktilux 50mm f/0.95 is for Leica M, the Voigtlander 25 f/0.95 is for micro 4/3 (35mm equivalent of 50mm f/1.9). So neither are going to get on your EOS for anything other than extremely close macro.
Yes, those prices are real.
Too much gear, too little space.

Try:-

Noktor.com

The comment about them being f1.9 relates to depth of field comparisons.  Shutter speed is independent of sensor size.  So they should be great in low light.

I only mention micro four thirds as they have fast lens options.  Not trying to convert anyone!  But the thing I like about m43 is that virtually any lens from any manufacturer works.  Plus there are a lot of smaller businesses getting involved.  There's even fast Canon options with a company selling modified Canon 77mm f1.1 lenses on eBay (jieying-usa).

Thanks . now I understand why  these two lenses are left out on my post. these two are either m43 or e- mount. My original post is for FF SLR or FF DSLR.
