Just for fun thread...

Canon make 24-70 and 70-200 f2.8 zooms. The troulbe is that to me the most useful focal lengths are 50-135mm ie the long end of one and the short end of the other. Huge financial layout asside, changing lenses all the time is a pain in the butt.

I would absolutely love a 50-135 f2.8 for full frame. I assume it'd be possible ; that's a 2.7x f2.8 zoom, similar to the 24-70 and 70-200. Canon would probably rather people jsut bought both, but I'm sure there's enough people that'd buy all 3 :lol:


Maybe Sigma or somoene else who is having a hard time competing with canon on like-for-like offerings could fill some of these gaps. Oh and sigma, if you could manage f2 then I will pass you a blank check. Also, i hate extending zooms, so 70-200 style fixed size please, not 24-70 style ;)


What other currently non-existent -- but feasable; yes we'd all like a razor sharp 10-1000mm f1.4 lens the size of a teacup, but it ain't happening -- lenses would people love to see :)

Here is my with list.

135L f/2 with IS!

100-400L f/4.5-5.6 MKII faster AF new IS! (Yet not excessively priced more than the current model)

500mm f/5.6 OS (Sigma) for a realistic price! (Or a 400mm with OS, but want the 500!)

14-24mm f/2.8 with the sharpness and price of the Nikon.

A good 20mm f/1.8 or faster!


Thanks for Reading & Good Luck - Jim

Are you talking about full-frame? Sigma makes a 50-150 2.8 for crop.

I would love one of those too. I find it a hard lens to hand hold. Yeah I can crank up the ISO, but even just keeping the focus point steady on an eye can be hard.

L primes with IS would be nice (coming from the video side). Also a Canon 24-70 2.8 IS.
And in the realm of want, but probably can't afford, stupid fast 50mm prime f0.95 EF mount.

Give me a 100mm f/1.4L with IS. Then I would need neither the 85L nor the 135L. It'll fit perfectly between the upcoming Sigma 50mm and the yet-to-be-released Canon 200mm f/2.8 IS.

a 50mm f1.2-1.4 with accurate and reliable (durable) autofocus and good background blur.

Oops, sorry. You did say it does have to be feasable!!

Canon 14-40 f2.8 IS. Image quality and sharpness would be better than the current 16-35 but not as good as the current 24-70 f2.8 II

Canon 24-105 f2.8 IS. image quality and sharpness can be somewhere between the current 24-105 and the current 24-70 f2.8 II

Canon 70-300 f2.8 IS. Completely on par with the current 70-200 f2.8 IS II

Canon 100-400 f4 IS. Twist zoom instead of the push/pull with a bump in image quality and AF speed

I am not a lens designer and I have no idea if these lenses are feasible or not. I do however know that if Canon made these lenses, I would buy every one of them and that would be the end of lens buying for me. Those lenses combined with the 5D3 that I am saving for would make for an absolutely perfect kit in my opinion.
