I'm just wondering if a lack of correction data for some lenses in Canon DPP DLO module is not a hint at their life cycle and expected upgrades/end of life announcements. I'm observing what they add to the list of provided lenses and was wondering why 70-200 2.8 (NON IS) was missing all the time. After the rumor, that Canon is about to end this lenses life, I think it might be connected somehow with their absence in the DLO module - they didn't include it because they krew that it's end of life of this lens anyway.

Canon has added some new lenses to the list in DLO, has even addded 1.4 and 2.0 teleconverters variations with some of them, but 70-200 2.8 was still missing.

If this is about to be true, then popular EF 135L 2.0, 50 1.8, 85 1.8, 100 2.8 Macro (non IS non L) and 300 F/4 L IS are missing as well so does it mean, that they are on their upgrade path?
