when Canon since 2005 has  introduced some of the finest ever built lenses. Better then any other manufacturer - to name only a few:
  • 70-200 f/4.0 L IS USM

Beer can 70-210 f4

  • 70-200 f/2.8 L IS USM II

70-200mm f/2.8 SAL70200G

Which is inferior to the Canon

  • TS-E 17 f/4.0 L

Isn't that kind of slow?

Is this supposed to be an intelligent comment? Do you even know what TS stands for?

  • TS-E 24 f/3.5 L II

Easy to beat. Too lazy to find yourself?

With what? Again, do you know what TS stands for? This and the previous one are among the best considered Canon lenses, even by non Canon users

  • 24-70 f/2.8 L USM II

Pfff, standard staple. Sigma has one. Carl Zeiss has one.

The new one is an exceptional lens, but of course "pfff" for you

  • 300 / 400 f/2.8 L IS USM II

I'm sure there is a G lens for that.

No there isn't for the 400 2.8.

  • 500 / 600 f/4.0 L IS USM II

I'm sure this can be found as well. Either a G lens, or Tokina, Sigma, or Tamron might have something like this.

600 f/4 is available only from Minolta

Sorry, I can 't see anything special that can't be met with what's available for the Alpha lineup.

That's because your ignorance of both Canon and Sony/Minolta line-ups is fairly deep
