20 F/2L - probably only barely possible; maybe asking a little much IOW. If that is too much, a 20 F/2.8L will do too, provided it is of the same standard as TS-E 24L II and TS-E 17L :D.
Kind regards, Wim


http://www.mir.com.my …ared/zuiko/html​s/21mm.htm (external link) Olympus made a 21mm f/2 which is supposed to be great and quite compact. (I have the f/3,5 version)

I would love to see some nice Primes that have L build quality but prices more like the 17-40L is priced, and don't have huge aperture, but still have the ring type focus and full time manual override.

Something like

28L 2.8 for $650
50L 1.8 for $500
85L 2.2 for $700
200L 2.8 (already exists)

Nikons new primes are close to pro quality with pro features but at a 1/4 the price.

Yeah. I'm sure we all would. But I think you missed the "realistic" point. It's supposed to be something that doesn't stretch the optics technology or pocket book too far. I'm sure that lens could be made as a multi-million dollar NASA project (minus the fit in the pocket part) but I won't be able to buy it at Amazon.

one can dream :lol:

For me I'd like to see a Full Frame 24-85mm f/2.8L IS.

I've owned the 24-85, 24-70L, 24-105L IS , Ef-S 15-85mm IS and wondering if this is a doable combo.

LOL

all these lenses already exist...

28mm 1.8 (faster than the 2.8 you're wanting)
50mm 1.8 and 1.4
85mm 1.8 (also faster)
200mm 2.8L

I've owned non L's and L's. the only L's i notice that are built quite tough are the zooms. the primes still feel kinda cheap. my 24L and 35L are all plastic feeling. the tele primes are built more solid

all of these are built quite nicely except the 50mm 1.8 and the 1.4 seem to break after a while. the 50mm is the only one they need to update. but the 1.4 is still a great lens. seems like you're willing to pay $200-$300 just to have a red ring on the end

I'd like a moderately priced 500mm f/5.6 IS lens. Maybe in the 3-4k range?

I'd buy that in a heartbeat.

Actually no, but thanks for laughing at the idea. I could care less if it has a red ring, honestly the 50 1.4 and 1.8 are a joke compared to the nikon and sigma offerings. Not just in how cheaply they are built, but in how old their AF technology is. The 28mm and 85 have similar issues. The 85 is an exceptional lens for the price, but it and its bigger brother the 1.2L have plenty of flaws and something like what I had talked about would allow a couple compromises so that a very useable design could be a achieved.

To many people just assume that the quality of a lens is all about the f stop value associated with that lens. In reality with cameras shooting at 6400 iso and yielding clean results aperture is become far less important when talking about anything less than 2.0. Pentax has discovered this with their series of DA limited primes and pancake lenses, that are all in the 1.8 to 3.5 range but yield incredible image and build quality.

What I am asking for is modern ring type focus in an affordable package that has the same level of quality control as an L lens, but to save on costs don't make the lenses as fast.

Not sure what is wrong with you L primes either but my 24, 50, 135, and 300 are all build far better than any of my L zooms.

I have to agree with this. For example, the amount of CA on the 85/1.8 is really not acceptable given current technology. However, I don't see any real need for smaller max. apertures on these unless it there is a compelling reason such as making them pancakes, and I don't see a need for pancake lenses on cameras the size of a 7D or 5D. A set of EF-S pancakes for the smaller Rebel bodies would be very appealing, though, and more compact than EF lenses.

So perhaps an EF-S 24/2.8 pancake and a EF-S 30/2 pancake along with updated versions of the current 28, 50 and 85 primes.

I would like an f/1.8 / f/2 short zoom (standard to tele on APS-C would be fine) with close focus ability. Size and price be damned!

Edit: Posted before I saw this -

EF 14-85mm f/2

Would be sick on a FF body.

That is wider and longer than I would need, but yes, I'd take it. I think a more realistic range would be 16-70mm at most, most likely 24- or even 28-55mm to be realistic on the price, size, and weight (although I doubt the lens would be as troublesome to use as the Sigma 120-300mm f/2.8, so I would be happy even if it was as heavy as the 70-200mm f/2.8 II).

A longer TS-E than 90mm would be good, as would be a faster TS-E (i.e., TS-E 90mm f/2 instead of just f/2.8).

Also, while it's not a big deal for me, the 200mm f/2.8 is a 1996 era lens and is currently eclipsed in raw resolution by the current 70-200mm f/2.8 II zoom lens. An update would be able to at least match the zoom, and would likely improve upon it in every way (for example, better blur character).

10-50mm sub-f2.8 USM IS
50mm f1.4 USM IS

With what I like to shoot, either one of these would be awesome.

I vote for a 10-24L IS...Canon hasn't touched the low light wide angle that Tokina has and with L quality I suspect it would move well.

EDIT: I would also like to see schneider optics come out with more lenses...I would drool over a 135mm. Don't think they make that one yet.
