..Or should I say dreamlist?
What new lenses would YOU like to see?
New cameras, new features... They don't have to be realistic, this is just for fun.
I'll start:

Nikon 50mm f/1.2 Nano coated ED IF AF-S
Nikon 35MM f/1.4 Nano coated IF ED Af-s
Nikon 16-70mm f/2.8 Nano coated ED Af-s IF DX (to match up with the 70-200mm f/2.8)

Well then... for a $300 500g 10-500 f1.0 lens..... I would switch to Nikon :-)

Personally, I would hope for Canon to release something better then the latest Nikon; Pentax/Sony do one better then Canon with something new so that Nikon can leap-frog again in the autumn.... Real competition raises all of us IMO. At the least, Canon should release a top of the line camera that can focus... A MKIIIb if you like :-)

What I would love and will never happen is a open standard RAW format (and no DNG is not it) and open firmware so us hackers can get in and change/add features in the firmware (I know there is an SDK of sorts and there was a hack for one of the Canon rebels but they throttle it to sell newer bodies).

I'd love to see a new version of the 100-400 f5.6 IS. Even if they only upgraded the IS, I want the reach!

An Ugly person filter would be handy as well, especially for self portraits...

I never found the 100-400 a good range for the weight of that thing... Maybe a 200-400 would work better. Any re-work would prob get rid of the push/pull which would be a shame as one of the few that loved my old push/pull 35-105.

Now there is an idea..... I would suggest a bad image lock - the chip would say, nah photo sux I am not wasting the bits on it - but then I would never get an image out of the thing :-)

Odds are very good this one will come true, but only with a F 1.4. Whether you'll be willing to fork out 1200 bux for a 50mm prime is another thing altogether.

I second that... although the rumour-mill over at DPReview would suggest otherwise. New Canon SLR's are supposed to be announced today or tomorrow!

Why not?
With the 450 announcement the 5D is the ONLY body not replaced in the past 12 months, the only non self cleaning, the only non-Digic3 body, only one without liveview...it's really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really out of date.

#1 AF-S DX 16mm f2.8 (recitlinear, not fisheye) 84 degree coverage lens with 62 or 52mm filter threads.

#2 A digital version of the Nikon 28Ti and allow users to shoot RAW with it.

#3 A digital Nikonos (not RS sized)

#4 35mm f1.4 AIS made into an AF lens.

#5 start producing the 70-180 micro again, maybe even add VR

#6 a 70-200 range f4

#7 a 23mm or 19mm DX pancake lens so coupled with a D40 you wouldn't need #2 above.

#8 an iTTL version of the SB-30

#9 start putting threaded cable sockets on it shutter release buttons.

#10 go back to using just 52, 62 & 77 filter threads
