Would surely round out the kit nicely.

+2 And for me it wouldn’t even need macro capabilities since it would be my low light group photo lens.

Although if I have 24 and 50, then I want a 135mm. 85mm is too close to 50. So lets also ask for a compact 135mm f2.8 like the olden days.

24/50/135mm is a complete, travel the world setup.

A sweet trio for travel indeed.  Myself, I’ve got travel covered by a nice compact M system.

And since I’m not going to be picking up the big boy 85 f/1.2, I’m adding the RF 85 f/2 for portraits, and probably would skip a 135 (unless I just get the excellent existing EF 135 f/2).  I have the little 35 already, so it’d be nice to fill out the quartet with 24, 35, 50, and 85 mid-level primes.  Which is where Canon needs to go to prep the way for their (anticipated) lower tiers of RF bodies (to replace the Rebels, xxD, RP and original R).
