most of all: an equivalent for the Nikkor 14-24 f2.8, apparently Canon has no lense that matches the optical performance of this zoom, even not the 14 f2.8, which is a FFL and more expensive than Nikons zoom.

2nd wish: that the new 200-400 4f with 1.4 Extender will not be too pricy (< 4000 US$ ??)

3nd wish: a 50 f1.4 II being sharp until the corners even wide open.

I'd really like a prime, wide-angle (in 35mm-E terms) EF-S lens.  Somewhere in the 15-17mm range.  F/2 or faster.  I love the 28mm-E focal length, and if a fast prime of this lens existed, it would rarely leave my camera.

However, I'm afraid I'm the only person on the earth who wants such a thing.
I'm *this* close to switching to Nikon! I swear - I'll do it! Maybe next month, or in a week, or when they release the D ... oh, look a shiny thing!

Not quite as wide as you'd like, but Sigma makes a 20mm f/1.8 that would give you 32mm FF-equivalent and faster than f/2...

I've looked at that as an option, as well as sacrificing a stop or so and going with the Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8.  As it is, there's no perfect solution yet, so I guess I'll wait. 

Thanks for the reminder - I may have to set my 10-22mm to the 20mm setting and see what I think ...

Always a good idea if you have a zoom covering the range of prime lens(es) you're considering.   8)

Another way to see what you like is to review your existing images.  Adobe Lightroom will let you look at various combinations of camera and lenses and see how many images were taken at various focal lengths, shutter speeds, and a ton of other things.  I did this when considering whether to get the 24mm 1.4 or 35mm 1.4.  I had twice as many images at 35mm, so thats what I bought.

I found a older Tokina 17mm prime locally on Craigslist for $150.  Its not a crop lens, and not f/2.8, but it fills the need for ultra wide on my Canon 5D MK II and was actually good enough that I sold my Canon 17-40mm L.

I did that as well, for the exact same decision - I also bought the 35L (last month, in fact).  The caveat about image review is that you have to keep processing in mind, or look at the original RAW files.  I'm not sure how LR displays them, but Aperture shows the processed images in the library - and while I have many images shot at 24mm, a lot of them ended up being cropped a bit in post, maybe not quite to a 35mm FoV, but the 35mm lens was clearly the best choice for me.

My personal choices for the wish list is a renewed Canon EF 35-350mm f/3.5-5.6 USM L, preferably at a constant F4 or even 3.5 if possible,
and a replacement for the  Canon FD 150-600mm f/5.6 with IS and USM and ideally F4
That extra few mills out to 350 makes so much difference, the other is just a (wet) dream for me.
Be lucky

14-24 2.8 or 16-35 f4.  At this point, I'll take any updated UWA zoom sharper in the corners.

My wish:

24 1.4 II
100 2.8 IS macro

for new lenses:

35 1.4 II
50 1.2 II (or a 50 1.4 II)

PS ... I'd like all lenses to have IS. It's great for video, and sometimes you want deep DOF in low light.

On my wish list:
  • 24-70L F/2.8 IS
  • 50L F/1.2 II

Same here.
almost the same for me but I am thinking the 50mm 1.4 with a new longer lasting design is what i would get... and i am going to get a 24-70mm without the IS for now...

EF-S 30mm 1.4 to rival the Sigma 30mm.

for TSE Lens
 35mm tse   
 110mm tse
(both the 45 and 90 tse always seem to be the wrong angle of view)

for zooms
35-150 f4  this would be a great portrait range
16-28 F4  would love the size to be small for backpacking the 16-35 F2.8 is a great lens for work but I ain't carrying it for fun

Finally because it's a wish list i would love to see Canon standardize their lens shades, every other one I get any more has a different and confusing way to attach it  reminds me of those child proof tops that only a child could open
