Canon EF 1000mm F5.6 DO lens coming, filed patent suggests [CW3]

ef 1000mmm F5.6

Among all the patents filed by Canon, this may be one that actually could hit the market (in my opinion). The patent refers to an EF 1000mm F5.6 DO (Diffractive Optics) lens. Would be perfect for the upcoming Olympic Games :-) Who knows…maybe Canon is already field-testing this lens.
