A refresh of the 200 2.8L, I know... I'm alone in this.

Really sharp?  With blue goo (if appropriate for a tele)?  No, you are not alone.

An Eye selection of AF points! It worked great on my film cameras.

Body1: EOS 200Dx with much better PD AF, AFMA, some useful SW features, external power plug for 5...30V (USB power bank ... 24 V lead batteries.) + 100 g more weight would be acceptable + some enhanced video features (license it from MagicLantern after giving them money+information to develop it).

Body2: A very compact FF mirrorless with ring around lens base (like Powershot S95) + possibility to use special lenses, e.g. EF-X and to use EF(-S) lenses via 12mm extension tube (dual use) + a 16bit DR mode however it can be realized (10 times larger full well capacity by using third dimension in chip production). I would REALLY LIKE to use my old FD glass on a modern Canon FF camera!

Lens1: 1.4 50mm IS compact but with homogenous and very good IQ over the frame at 1.4, stellar from 2.0 on

Lens2: a f4.0 40-200 L IS USM with similar IQ like 70-200

Lens3: an APS-C f/2.8 20-60mm IS nanoUSM with great IQ and 1:2 macro on the 60mm side.

Most used tools: EOS 200D + EF-S 60mm + 4.0 / 70-200 IS AND/OR EOS 5D i  + 4.0 70-200 IS + 2.8 100 Macro

1) 24-300 f/3.5-5.6L IS USM
At the sports event at London, at the men's final of 110m hurdles, the winner left his lane and went to the side line to his fans/friends/familiy/trainer. On the right side, there was a "pro" with a lens that looked like the 100-400 II, but without a hood. To me, it seems he wasn't used to the lens, because he had to take off the cam from his eye to find the zoom-ring. then he took a photo of the scene, 6-8 feet away from him. it is hard for me to belief that he took a photo with 100mm at that distance ... may be that was your new 24/28-300mm lens in the field.
Sorry, i cannot show a picture of the scene, so, may be i'm wrong and the pro took a macro shot of the winner's nose.

HA! I saw the exact same thing and thought he was WAY too close for even 100mm, there's also another thread around where I spotted a video with a canon employee demoing the 6D2 with what looked like a 100-400, but fitted with a wide angle hood. Pretty sure that lens is in the wild.

I'd like  a canon 600 ex 3 flash , maybe lithium or new series altogether, but way cheaper than the current 600ex rt, but still as powerful.

The 28-300 is built in a housing almost identical to the first generation 100-400 (switches on different side of the collar as largest differentiation clue). If Canon does the same (makes sense for the zoom range) for an upcoming 24-300, I'd expect it to look confusingly similar to the 100-400 II.
If that's an EF 100-400 f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM, it's zoomed to more than 300mm.  If it's a 24-300, I guess the put the zoom backwards, like the first 24-70L.

Canon should not increase the megapixels further. There are other more important topics that could be improved. e.g. Flash menu (limitation of auto ISO 400 is completely nonsensical), the improvement of the dynamic range, noise reduction in the high ISO range. etc.

600 f/5.6L that sells for $3K (and physically smaller/lighter than f4 version).

7D Mark III --

22MP, 12 FPS, No AA filter, 13+ stops dynamic range, 1DX2 level AF, Dual SD UHS-II, or one CFast and one UHS-II, Touch Tilt Screen, 200 shot buffer, ISO of 25,600 or more, 4K video without additional crop. $1800.

If anyone thinks this is unrealistic, it is barely more than a D500.


5DSR Mark II --


50MP, 8-9 FPS, No AA filter, 14 stops DR, 1DX2 level AF, CFast + UHS-II SD, Touch Tilt Screen, DPAF, 4K without crop, 45 shot buffer, $3,300.


If anyone thinks this is unrealistic, it is barely more than a D850.

The above would be the real specs if Canon didn't hold back. Reality is, these two releases will eat up 2018 and 2019 and will be no where near as good as what I listed. They will be marginally better than the current models.


Glass:

50mm 1.4 that is at least as sharp as the Sigma Art.
24-70 2.8 IS
70-200 2.8 IS III that is a little lighter weight
135mm F2 II, IS preferred
105mm 1.8
16-200mm EF/S

A full frame body with 1/1000 flash sync.  Don't make me beg.
