I mostly agree with this - except I would also see these lenses getting updated before a 24-105:

24-200G

They don't make a 24-200... And the 24-240 isn't a G branded lens. I think the only reason to update it is if they wanted to steal sales from Tamron's excellent 28-200, but that might not be their priority at all.

50/2.8 macro

70-300G

28/2

all of them are in need of an update before the 24-105.

I'm with Malling and others here, I doubt any of the non-G lenses will ever see direct updates, maybe some sort of replacement with similar specs but probably not an mk II. Laowa is supposedly about to announce a 58/2.8 2x macro btw, but I dunno if it's FF or APS-C.

Edit: Latest leak revealed it's a fairly beefy FF macro (67mm filters, >100mm long).

I think the first 3rd party to make a solid 28mm prime will find some sales merely by default, but the Sony 28/2 is still great on lower res bodies and/or if you don't need to shoot it wide open.
