I would say, in order:

1200mm f/5.6L 1.4x FD (extinct)
1200mm f/5.6L
65mm MP-E
17mm f/4L TS-E
8-15mm f/4L fisheye
50mm f/1L
150-600mm f/5.6L nFD
38-76mm f/4.5-5.6 (rare, but not desirable)
35-80mm f/4-5.6 PZ (rare, power zoom)

Third party EF mount:

200-500mm f/2.8 Sigma

The Canon 8-15 F4L is pretty unique.  If I'm not mistaken, I don't think there has ever been another fisheye zoom lens on the market.

Tokina has the 10-17mm fisheye for crop cameras.

Which is the same as the Pentax 10-17mm

Didn't even know there was a 5200mm canon lens :D thank you for that.

I take back my answer. This 150-600mm is certainly an odd beast.

Sigma 50-500mm is a pretty unique zoom, as well as 8-16mm DC :)
FF + primes !

Well, in terms of lenses that I'd actually like to be able to own & use, it would be the S-mount 50mm f/0.95.  I'd be all over one of those things adapted to a Fuji X-Pro 1.

I'd say quite opposite: 50 1.8. It's exotic because it's 10 times cheaper than others and still delivering outstanding IQ. In terms of Canon - you can admit it's quite exotic :)

In a way the DO lenses (70-300/4-5.6 and 400/4) are quite exotic.  The optics work like no other lenses.

1200mm f5.6 is a wide angle compared to the Canon 5200mm F14 Prime Lens. Yea, it's a mirror lens, but it's still 5200mm.  5200mm Canon Lens World's MOST powerful Super telephoto EF FD (updated upload)

Id love this for shooting weddings from home. :D
