On my desire list are:

1. EF 400 f/2.8L IS II // in combination with a 1.4x and 2.0x converter this would give more flexibility that one of the f/4 supertelephotos.
2. TS-E 17 f/4L // for me this is the most desirable u/w lens.
3. EF 100 f/2.8L IS macro // I don't do a lot of macro, but this would be a more easy to handle package than my current 180 f/3.5
5D3, 16-35LII, 24-70 2.8LII, 24-105L, 85LII, 70-200 2.8LII, 100L, 135L, 100-400L, 50 1.4, 40 2.8, Sigma 180 3.5 EX, 1.4x TC III, 600EX, 550EX

24-70mm f/2.8L II
85mm f/1.2L
135mm f/2L

With a FF of course :)

The 70-200 f/2.8L IS II is also in my dreams, but I feel like there is more creative control in the 85 and 135mm lenses.
6D, 24-105mm f/4L, 100mm f/2.8L Macro, 50mm f/1.4, 40mm f/2.8, lots of strobist stuff.

85 1.2L + 200 f/2 + 14-24 L that will definitely be a lens.  at least it better be.
5D3 + 16-35 + 85 + 135

Flexibility, yes. But while the 400 II with 1.4x III delivers IQ similar to the 500/4 and 600/4 MkI, the MkII versions of those lenses are much better.  If you need f/2.8, then the choice is obvious. But, if you need the reach more, I'd plan on (or wish for) the 600/4 IS II.  That lens with the 1.4x III gives 840mm f/5.6 that is optically at least as good as the 800/5.6.

I notice a lot of Wide Aperture Worship in this thread.   8)

I don't really dream of lenses that are very big and heavy.

1. I would love one of those Canon tilt-shift lenses, I have never had such a thing and the possibilities are exciting.

2. The new EF 28mm f2.8 IS is a dream standard lens for me on my 28mm sensor camera. But I will probably never get it because the practical guy inside me keeps saying "your 17-55 includes 28mm, includes f2.8, and includes IS, so what are you thinking!?!"

3. The EF 70-300mm L IS, I dream of this one A LOT because it is probably my next lens purchase!

Its truly amazing to see so many of us dreaming about the 200mm F2.  I didn't think there were that many fans of this lens esp. with the new 70-200 2.8 L IS USM II out there.

Despite a bit of griping from some folks on this lens with its variable aperture, I can't begin to tell you how razor sharp this lens is.  Sure I wish they made it an F4 straight away but nonetheless, once you own and shoot this it's hard to put down.
Thanks

50mm f/1.2
600mm f/4
8mm f/2.8 fisheye (can't buy easily) 8-15mm would be the one, but I'm not sure how much I would use it.

I'll get the first one next year.  I'll get the second one if I win the lottery.
