though choice for 2018.  There were two items I would really like to see - 7DM3 and 600DO, but I could only vote once so I went with the 600DO.

Where can I vote for the MT-26EX-RT?

What I'd like to see is a 250/300mm f/5.6 IS USM Macro with about 75 cm MFD
Magnification (1:1 for macro), focal length and MFD are not free to choose. You are only free to choose two of those, the third results automatically (within some slight variation depending on lens design and from where you measure).
Assuming the focal length at MFD is not significantly longer than the nominal value at infinity focus, the minimum distance from lens front element to object should be very close to the focal length.
Afaik MFD is usually measured from the sensor, this would then be about focal length + length of lens + sensor flange distance. But you are likely asking for working distance from the front of the lens, for which 75cm is unrealistic at 300mm and 1:1.
5D4+BG-E20, 70D+BG-E14, EF 24-70 f/4L IS, EF 16-35 f/4L IS, EF 100 f/2.8L IS macro, EF 70-200 f/2.8L IS II, EF 100-400 L IS II, 2x 600EX-RT, 430EX III-RT, MT-26EX-RT

For me the 6D MarkII was my favourite gear which I bought meanwhile (should arrive tomorrow). It is just about the right successor for my 5D Mark II. I never could justify a 5D Mark III let alone a 5D Mark IV as their AF systems are way too "over-sophisticated" for my personal needs.

The minimum focusing distance of the EF-S 35mm is a way too short

Totally agree; I was interested until I saw that.

As opposed to all those other 28-35mm macro lenses with much longer MFDs?  I mean, it's not like focal length is inversely related to MFD for a macro lens, or anything like that, right?  Poor, uninnovative Canon, damn them for not being able to change the laws of optical physics.  Or maybe it's just that you don't understand the relevant concepts...   ::)

Number one on my wish list for 2018 is a Canon 6D mk III with a new sensor with high DR.   And a wider spread on the AF points.   And more versatility of video output.  And maybe 4k, too, why not?
 
This is a minor refresh -- just a few things to change -- so we shouldn't have to wait 5 years for it!!!   ::)

Yeah, but it costs more.  Canon needs to just sell the 5DIV for the price of a T3i.  Or else they're doomed.

I voted as well, but in specifics, the dream get would be:

EF 50mm f/(1.4 or 1.8.) IS USM -- with ring USM + internal focusing.

I thought Canon was a GOD and the laws of optics does not apply to their products :)

But it's missing the tilt/flip screen.
If Canon were to add a tilt screen add a few more pieces to the video options to the 5dmk4, call it a 5dmk4c, I'd be in

I didn't want the 135mm TS to feel left out, so I voted for it. The only thing I bought in 2017 was a 200-400, couldn't get anything else. Or even need anything else.
1DX II, 16-35L f/4 IS, 24-70L f/2.8 II, 70-200L f/2.8 IS II, 200-400L f/4 IS w/1.4 EXT

That's what I voted for! A new 50mm 1.4 IS. Yes please!!!
The worst picture ever is the one not taken: so shoot, shoot, shoot! Know your equipment first however to avoid as much as possible, bad photos. ;-)
