A lot of unrealistic suggestions here. My realistic request:

Canon EF 500mm F/5.6L IS USM, and would be nice to see it around $3k - $3.5k (though Canon's pricing on new lenses lately is just silly, so not likely).

Another certainly realistic lens I'd like to see:

Canon EF-S 20mm F/1.8

1) 12-60mm f4 L IS as a successor to the 17-40L, with the same internal focus, similar build and size, and under 800g.

2) 40mm f2 USM pancake.

3) 10mm f2.8 EF-S, 72mm filter, under 400g.

Would love to see Canon release a 100-300 F2.8 IS zoom and maybe expand the current 24-70 to
24-85 F2.8 IS.

I would like a Canon 120-300 2.8

That's out there, it's called a Sigma. :D

Realistic lens, 100-400 f/4 IS w/ a twist zoom. Problem is going to be the price. The dream version would be the f/2.8 version of that, but I imagine that would be a $10k - $12k lens (or more).

I would like to see Canon do their own version of that Sigma 120-300 f/2.8, but I am guessing that it would cost $5k - $6k, where the new Sigma is $3200.

well if anything is possible. a 1-1000000000000000mm F0.1L IS with the same sharpness as any Zeiss prime, the size and weight of a 24-105, and the price of a 50 1.8 II.
