Re: 20-50mm f/2.8

Don't think anyone has mentioned this before, but why not a 20-50mm f2.8? I'd love to see that. 20mm is ultra-wide enough for most situations, and get to normal. With only a 2.5x soon range, they should be able to make it sharp and fast.

Of course this will never happen because it would cut into people getting their 'trinity' zooms. But since you asked, that's what I would like..

I would go for that as well - I mentioned 16-80 (may be even variable aperture zoom in the style of the new 80-400):

However a full frame 20-50 f/2.8 will also do famously to be paired with a 70-200 f/2.8 VR II. 18-50 f/2.8 will be even better - but if it cannot be done & has to be a 2.5x zoom 18-45/20-50 f/2.8 would work as well. For now 16-35 f/4 + 70-200 works though.
