If you ask me, as a 5D user....
EF 35mm f1.4L II
EF 135mm f1.8L IS

And... for APS-C user
EF-S 30mm f1.4 (or f1.8)
EF-S 21mm f2
EF-S 15mm f2.8

And... a wild dream
A standard f2.8 Pancake!


Too good to be true...

In order of drooling (200-400 and new 500 F4 II are the top of my list)

24-70 F2.8 - don't care about IS, I want it to be sharp - just as sharp as the 70-200 F2.8 II

180 or 200 F4 macro with Tilt shift

TS/E 45, 90, 135  (or similar).  TS are great for pans.

Zoom extender (1-1.4).  This may be technical very difficult, not impossible, to produce

1.7 extender - when 1.4 is not enough and 2.0 is too much

Other things I want:

- Canon to buy Hassy and get the price of bodies down.  40 MP MF body at $10K.  Price of lens reduced by 25-33%.  They can not add many more MP to 35mm sensors without getting into (1) serious S/N issues and (2) reaching diffraction limits of lens.

- 1:3 Pan camera (35mm or larger sensor).  If 35mm size sensor, adaptor to use Hassy Xpan lens.  Manual focus okay.  6x17 size sensor would great, but the price would be over $50K

Enough.  I just spent my entire photo budget for the next 5 years.

Yes the new big whites look stunning. I'm not sure that I would ever choose a 500mm f4 and a 200-400mm f4. They are too close for the cash. I'd prolly have to jump for a 200-400 f4 and a 600 f4. But a 300 2.8 with both extenders is mighty tempting instead....and a lot cheaper ;-) 

My 24-70L is already prime lens sharp, so I guess it varies with copy to copy. My 2nd photographer's copy is just as sharp too. I'm only really interested if Canon adds a cool IS unit, otherwise my current copy is doing just fine.

I'd be all over a 200mm f4 Hybrid IS Macro L.....

I already have a 135L and a 45 TS-e there's not going to be enough in new versions to tempt me.

I've always thought that a 1.6x TC made sense in the Canon world. Perfectly match a 1.6 cropper on a FF.

I'm currently very happy with my 7D and 5DII's although I'd need to play with a 5DIII to seriously tempt me ;-)

Shipping Product wish list:
- 100-400 f/4.5-5.6L
- 24-105 f/4 L

Wish Canon would release:
- 100-400 f/4.5-5.6L IS USM II (given the 70-300 L and 200-400 L announcements, I don't think the 100-400 will see an update soon, if ever)
- EFS 15-85 f/2.8 IS USM

And affordable primes - it also appears these won't see any updates in our lifetimes either
- EF 50 1.4 II
- EF 35 f/2.0 II
- EF-S 30 f/1.4 - like the Sigma only Canon
6D | 7D  | EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM | EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM | EF 70-200 f/2.8L IS USM | EF 70-300 f/4-5.6L IS USM |
EF 35mm f/2 | EF 50mm f/1.4 | EF 85mm f/1.8

I'm hoping that Canon will update the 100-400... ;)

But for existing lenses:
24mm f1.4/L II
85mm f1.2/L II
Still undecided about the 17-40 f4/L or the 16-35 f2.8/L (Leaning towards the 17-40 due to price point and I don't think I would make much use of the f2.8 on the wide range of the zoom)

EF-S 50-135/2.8 IS ring-USM

If it's an equivalent build and optical quality to the 17-55/2.8, and a retail price of under $1800, it would sell like crazy.

I just realized I've been desensitized by recent "L" pricing.  $1400 would be much more appropriate pricing.
Looks like Sigma is first out of the gate

Just for fun, anyone here like a focal reducer? Yup, the opposite of a extender/teleconverter. Reduces focal length and increases effective aperture. You will run out of image circle at some point, so this would only be useful to shrink EF lenses to EF-S image circle really.

EF-s 10-[17-22] f/4 (and in a compact/sturdy body).  I would never carry the current 10-22 into the backcountry..
my other prayer was answered when they announced the 200-400 4

an update to the 20mm 2.8 USM, or make the 24mm non-L a USM lens..

what is it about the 10-22 that you don't trust?  weathersealing?  or general build quality?  I've taken some non-L and even non-canon glass on hikes in serious brush with no problem

- EF 50 1.4 II or 50L II


I really want an EF 50 f/1.4 II.  That micro USM needs to be replaced.

Please give me:

1: An afordable and fast wide angle prime. For example: 28/1.8 II (USM), 35/2.0 II (USM) or a very cheap 35/2.0 (same as the 50/1.8). Although I think it is very likely that Canon only will make (expensive) L-primes in the future (I hope I'm wrong).
2: 16-50/4L IS
3: 80-400/4-5.6L IS

Those lenses (especially the first two) would be interesting for both crop and full frame users.

(1) 500 f/4 + lottery win 8)
(2) 400 f//5.6 IS, lottery win not completely necessary  ;)
(3) Updates for some of the affordable wide angle primes like 24 f/2.8, 28 f/1.8 or 28 f/2.8, 35 f/2 with USM and better build quality (like 20 f/2.8 and 28 f/1.8 )

Oh, btw, all for full frame of course.

Cute idea, but as you say it could only possibly work to put the full frame field of view onto an APS-C size sensor. You would not gain in the aperture, and I don't know what would happen to the DOF either.
