Canon patent for EF-M 55-300mm f/4.5-6.3 DO IS lens for EOS M system

JPA_427232674_000002

A long awaited super-zoom lens for the EOS M system with better optics might soon be reality. Canon filed a patent for a  EF-M 55-300mm f/4.5-6.3 DO IS lens, featuring diffractive optics and image stabilisation. Canon already has a telephoto lens for the EOS M, the Canon EF-M 55-200mm F4.5-6.3 IS STM

Such a lens would be a welcome addition to the small lens line-up currently available for the EOS M system. Canon filed other patents for telephoto lenses for the EOS-M system. However, this patent might refer to a a product that could hit the market. If it does, then the price is the what I would like to know first. Optics with DO elements are usually not cheap.
