I'm fine with a 50 the size of the new 35/1.8.

My only requirement is that it has to be sharp as h#ll.


Sharp as h#ll, and no extreme vignetting please. Oh, and perfect round bokeh circles across the frame at f/2.0 or f/2.2 please without pronounced outer lining. I bit like the Samyang 85mm f/1.2 XP would be nice.   Oh, and no fringing of course.  3 stops of IS is enough. Canon can skip the other 5 if that will make a smaller design possible.   And i don't need a macro feature at 50mm too, so if skipping that too to make it more compact it's fine by me.

I think it should actually be a little bit bigger than the 35mm. Not too big of course, but it should be big enough to meet the other requirements, you know.....
