I would like to have a refresh of the 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6. Get rid of the push pull zoom and update the glass and I would be happy. I cant afford to get the new 200-400, beyond renting every time I want to use this focal length I'd like to own an affordable big zoom. Something under 3K. Is that doable or am I just better off buying the old 100-400

rumour came out a few months ago the new 100-400 f4-5.6L IS (notice f4)
wont be push pull and will be around $3000

Right now it's two primes - the 50L or even the 50mm 1.4 (which is what I want but most likely canon are never gonna update it) and the 35L (apparently people have been waiting for this lens to be updated since 2009?)

Im interesting in the 24 IS or 28IS. But those ^ two I really want. An updated 85L that's weather sealed and better AF and faster focussing in low light over the non-L would be nice. I want a 17-40mm 2.8L. Or a cheaper and updated 17-55mm 2.8 ISmkii :)

I think the 17-40L and 70-200 f/4L, potentially among others, are incredibly good value already. I've yet to use a standard range zoom aside from the EF-S kit lens that felt like it was worth every penny.

ANY prime f/2 or faster with IS.  & at this point it's been so long that I mean any, from 14mm to 135mm, would make me happy.  These new f/2.8 wides are a step in the right direction & certainly the first non-macro non-L primes we've seen from Canon since 1995, but even Canon acknowledged that their primary purpose was as compact video lenses.  I've already got a 24-105 f/4L IS, why would I drop 90% of what I paid for it on a prime in the same focal length that's only one stop faster?

If life is all about what you do in the time that you have, then photography is about the pictures you take not the kit that took it. Still it's fun to talk about the kit, present or future :)

Tokina 11-16 DX II ... I wish it was coming out the same time as the Nikon version, but oh well, I'll just bide my time.
Canon XTi, AE-1 Program, Rebel II, Tamron 17-50 VC, Zenitar-M 50/1.7 and a bunch of other cheap lenses (50/1.8FD, 18-55 EF-S Kit, 35-70 Kit, 80-200 4.5-5.6). S100 classic.

ef 20mm f2.0L  (or f2.8 if f2.0 would ram up the price too much) no IS, and it better have awesome bokeh, I'm talking 200/2 quality here or 24/1.4ii.

To be honest, I'm not waiting on any lenses. The two lenses I have (24-105 and 17-40) cover me just fine 99% of the time. The only situation I want to shoot for which I lack a really good lens is a long exposure of the Milky Way... and I'm not about to shell out for the 16-35 or 14mm 2.8 for just that. For my budget and my subject matter, I'm completely satisfied with what I've got.
