I remember back in the days, I had a Nikon FE and along with it three "Series E" lenses. A 50mm, a 28mm and a 100mm. The lenses were optically great and relatively affordable. Sure would be nice to see something like that for Canon, but I guess in this day and age, it's not going to happen.

Life is short, time to zoom in ©

they still exist:
CANON EF 100mm F/2.0
28mm f2.8
24mm f2.8 prices still similar to 20 years ago.

I paid for the FD 24mm f2.8 about the same in 1978
