    <div>You're 1/3 of the way there already - newer bodies offer Peripheral Illumination Correction, which corrects the vignetting (light fall-off) of lenses in-camera for JPGs. Of course, if you shoot RAW, all of those corrections can be applied with lens-specific presets in DPP. Frankly, I would not want any of them applied in-camera to RAW images - I've found that DxO corrects them better than DPP, actually.</div>

    Agreed! A 500mm f/5.6L IS would be great.

    I just want a new 5D that meters more accurately and has a more advanced AF system. Then I can ditch my 1DsII.

    I think it would be great to see an all-new flash system that syncs with RF instead of IR.

    I would like a Canon compact with an APS-C sensor, or even better, a mirrorless body compatible with EF and EF-S lenses.


    Please...

    That's exactly what I want. My dream camera would be a 7Ds.

    Fun thread.


    No one ever talks about EFS lenses....and these don't have to be EFS, but aimed at those of us with cropped bodies (great optics assumed):
    • 15-85 f/4.0 and 17-55 f/2.8--weather sealed
    • To mimic the 70-200 range that is so popular on FF, how about a EFS 50-150 mm/40-120mm f/2.8.



    And, of course,
    • 100-400L II with 4 stop IS and weather sealed.
    • Updates to the non-L primes such as the 28 mm, 35 mm, 50 mm

    I agree with Kayaker72.


    The two biggest things I
    7D | 1D Classic | EF 70-200 f/2.8 L IS | EF 100-400 f/4.5-5.6 L IS | EF-S 17-55 f/2.8 IS
