And Canon markets at least two of their f4 zooms as L glass.
Provided you're only counting the standard zooms, that's right. They also have a couple of f4 wide angle L zooms, a 70-200 f4 L (highly regarded by landscape photographers), and a 70-300 f4-5.6 L and a 100-400 f4-5.6 L as well. Nonetheless, on Canon (and even more so on Nikon) forums, you'll find heated arguments over whether the premium f2.8 zooms are in fact better, at landscape apertures, than the f4 alternatives.

Good to know about their other lenses and the arguements

I only know of the wide angle and 70-200 f4 through listening to an interview with Art Wolfe and his main reason for using f4 lenses is his back and his age. I can relate to both of those.
