Early revues make it sound like it should be called the "Razor Brick".... It seems to out resolve some of the best primes Canon makes in similar focal lengths.

"Brick II" will do, though the price increase makes me like "Gold Brick" which some others have suggested.

I'll be the fifth person to suggest "Gold Brick", simple and to the point, also it makes the reference to Classic Brick easier to get. It can also be used as just "GB", so a person could say something like "Just bought a 24-70GB" or just "should I buy GB or classic?"

Important part to the success of a name is that it's easy to remember and use, so while "Lord of the red rings" is indeed funny, it's not easy to reference or even contract (LRR? LotRR? what's it stand for again??) you get the idea.

Edit: What! Five pages and no suggestions for Brickzilla? seriously? I am dissapoint.

I acquired an expensive camera so I can hang out in forums, annoy wedding photographers during formals and look down on P&S users... all the while telling people it's the photographer, not the camera.

My thoughts after going through all the other inputs so far:

- The Brick is no longer the brick - its smaller, lighter, and plastic. [Long live the Brick!!] It's name should try and reflect that. The 'son of a brick' concept sound appropriate. However, a one-word name would be easier to remember and more catchy.

I am thinking along these lines:

1. Son/Daughter of a pig is piglet, hence son/daughter of a brick is BRICKLET!
2. Son/Daughter of a duck is duckling, hence son/daughter of a brick is BRICKLING!
3. Son/Daughter of (lot of) birds is a chick, hence son/daughter of a brick is BRICKCHICK?
4. Son of David is Davidson, son of John is Johnson, ...hence son(?) of a brick is BRICKSON!

ETC., ETC. (Which actually means that is all I can think of right now!)

Gosh I never thought this would generate this much interest! It's Ridiculous!

"the broke" is clever but eventually this will settle into a standard, cozy price point which just won't have the initial meaning attached to it. Heck, you have to get away from the whole brick idea anyways because the lens is now more compact, light with a smaller hood. I predict it will just end up being called exactly what is labeled on the box.

After 4 years with the mark 1, I personally would only refer to it as the "crappy focal length range except for studio work lens". But that is just me!!
