For me, I'd love
50 1.4L
85 1.4L
Just to offer a more reasonable price point with better optical quality and better AF than a 1.2
35 1.5L mk2

I'd settle for a well-built 50mm that works properly.

Yes that or a 500 f5.6 under 4 grand.


When you see my camera gear you'll think I'm a pro.
When you see my photos you'll know that I'm not.

The ultimate all-around prime lens (pardon the oxymoron): EF 55mm f/2 IS L Macro

You know, a lens for the ages, a work-horse, one that you keep for decades...

EF-M 85mm (don't even need super fast glass I'm happy with 2.0-2.8)
or EF-M 135mm IS again even just 2.8 would be enough!

Don't want the EF versions, as a EF-M version could be made much smaller and better since the rear element can get closer to the sensor.

A modern, updated version of the 35L.

An updated 50/1.2L that does not change length when focussing and that also has a rear floating focussing element.

If this lens exits and similar quality and price as 100mm L, then I will buy one.

Some crop primes.
They've made the EFM 22mm.

What about an EFS 22mm pancake, or something a bit wider like an EFS 15mm, or an EFS 18mm.
