Desperately seeking birds

What was the last lens by anybody as jaw-dropping as the 28-70/2?
Or the MTF bokeh etc. of the 1.2?
After my post I realised I use a manfrotto veloce V which is a terrible bag (almost everything is sewed instead of being able to be changed with velcro, the zipper gets damaged easily and it has no available strap for the waist) but it has more or less the same dimensions. It even holds a second body with lens...It's an old Tamrac - I looked at their website but can't find it as they seem to have just larger more complex ones now.
I checked the local camera store who had several bags of similar size, about 16L. I bought mine originally for the 100-400mm II, which fits inside with the body attached, but the DO I pack separate from the body.After my post I realised I use a manfrotto veloce V which is a terrible bag (almost everything is sewed instead of being able to be changed with velcro, the zipper gets damaged easily and it has no available strap for the waist) but it has more or less the same dimensions.

Canon just bores me now, I don't expect them to do anything interesting for me ever again. Development announcements, Half baked and lower end cameras, just don't do it for me.
I'm much more interested in the 3rd party vendor news.
Let's see you use a lower end camera now, so your comments are interesting.
I guess the EOS lenses are not interesting because Canon was over 30 years ahead of all others and so when others introduce electronic diaphragms and everyone ohhs and ahhhs over it remember it is ancient technology.
The lens with a control ring as the RF has is again a huge deal that all others have nothing anywhere near like it. The Canon went further and destroyed others in innovation by making ALL your EF lenses have the same capability. The other major player abandoned half their Af system to obsolesce when they went mirrorless.
The R cameras are wonderful cameras and very solid workers. No Canon did not do the fluff that others have that either works half ass or is difficult to access.
If you think the R system is half baked then go elsewhere. But you will come back as the system matures in the next 2-3 years and the innovations in it are shown to be revolutionary and others will be trying to figure how to catch up.
