Next budget lens we need - 21mm
1

We have the 35mm f1.8 and 85mm f2.  Now all we need is a 21mm f2.4 in that same price ballpark to round out the trio.

21mm is just dipping the toes into ultrawide territory.  It's not so wide that it takes big skill to operate.  It can be used anywhere you'd use a 24mm, but just gives that extra bit of wide for landscapes and tight urban shots (or indoors).   24mm and 28mm are useful but boring.  All of the kit zoom options cover those.  So far the only ultrawide is the uber-expensive 15-35L.

IMHO would be 21/35/85mm is the perfect travel and everyday prime trio and would fit easily in a small bag with the Rp or R.  Can shoot just about everything but wildlife and sports with that combo

Knowing Canon, the next ones will be something boring like 28 or 50mm, but a guy can dream...
