At the current rate, even if Canon announced it tomorrow, it could be a year before you see it, and even then, with very limited quantities. Given that, I doubt you will be seeing anything in a store for 1-2 years if (and that is a big if) this was a high priority lens in testing now. Not to mention, with Canons new pricing structure, I doubt it would be under $2500

At the current rate, even if Canon announced it tomorrow, it could be a year before you see it, and even then, with very limited quantities. Given that, I doubt you will be seeing anything in a store for 1-2 years if (and that is a big if) this was a high priority lens in testing now.Actually, i think that is why we are seeing Canon hold off on announcing any new lenses...it'd be really embarrassing to announce another highly sought after lens and then not deliver for a year. And since they still keep pushing back the 24-70, I'm not expecting any lens announcements (except maybe a new kit lens for a new, cheaper full-frame) until next year
There was this CR2 rumor a little while agoSame with the new 100-400L, 35L, and I believe a non-L 50mm replacement (f/1.8 IS?). Most if not all were early in the summer, and its been quiet since then. The pushing back of the 24-70 probably explains why; maybe they'll get announced at Photokina.
Then again, some of these have been rumored for 2+ years...so, who knows
Canon have a patent for this formulae so it's possible. Anytime soon? More likely two years down the line.

until then....shooting 5D III + 16-35 II is not so bad at all.
A 14-24 would be great, but the 16-35 II will have to suffice for a while.
....I'll bring 5D III + 16-35 II with me next coming trip to Hong Kong & China. Helllllloooooo chinese food
Mmmmm, chinese food.
