Patiently waiting for my bank balance to catch up with the TS-E 17/f4L price....and then get "approval" from the mrs.  One will happen one day, the other?  :-)

Unreleased lens: 135 f/1.8

It doesn't matter where you start, it's where you finish.  All that counts is the photograph.

35 1.4 II or 1.8

50 1.4 II

16-35 or 14-24 (the most anticipated for me)

Unfortunately, I am afraid of price, having the canon's latest price policy in mind.
5D3, 35L, 85 1.8, 135L, 24-70L, 70-200L IS II, 580 EX II.

Check with NASA . . . I think they already have one . . . of course it's observatory mounted  ;D
Canon Rumors is presently creating photographer shortages in Middle Earth (all the trolls emigrated here)

EF 12-24 f.2.8/4.0 L is. This is a lens that i don`t think Canon ever will manufacture. But i`m waiting for it anyway.
And my dream wish EF 14-24 f.4.0 L T&S with autofocus

Realistically, the 200-400 f/4 / 280-560f/5.6 (Where is it? Is Canon desperately trying to make enough units to supply pro photographers at the London Olympics?)

In my dreams, a 200-500 f/4 or better yet f/2.8-4 with a maximum aperture of f/2.8 from 200mm to 350mm.

Only the 200-400mm f/4 - preferably before my trip to photograph Puffins in June - or certainly before Kenya in September
Workshops & Tours for Wildlife & Nature Photography - NaturesLens - http://natureslens.co.uk - often to be found shooting with a 1DX mainly coupled to an EF 200-400mm f/4L IS USM Extender 1.4x or an EF 300mm f/2.8L IS II USM

An update to the 17-40 without a 1.5x up-charge that seems to be occurring with the latest round of updates and an update of the 50mm 1.4. 
Canon 5d III, Canon 24-105L, Canon 17-40L, Canon 70-200 F4L, Canon 100L 2.8, Canon 85 1.8, 430EX 2's and a lot of bumps along the road to get to where I am.

waiting for an update on the 180 macro.

+1

But I got tired of waiting (been waiting for over a year for an upated version with IS), so I popped for the current model last week.

It is awesome, talk of slow autofocus is nonsense. It is very snappy, unless you are trying to go from macro to infinity. Who ever does that? How would you even try to focus on something you couldn't even see through the view finder?

Anywho, I guess we can expect the anouncement for the EF 185 f3.2L IS Macro USM any day now!  :D

Replacements for the
1) 17-40. Don't need 2.8 (16-35) but I do need better corners (sharpness) and less distortion.
2) 24-105 Again, corner sharpness (throughout) and distortion at the wide end.

an updated 35mm would be nice. the 35mm f2.0 is really an old lens.. the 35mm L lens is great.. but i wish where was some middle ground between a 300.00 lens and a 1400.00 lens in that focal range.

there have been hints of a new 100-400 for years. i'd be interested in that lens too.
