Hmmm,

100-500 5.6L IS

600 5.6 DO  BR  OK there is a 400 DO II which I happen to have and love and probably there will be a 600 4 DO - since they have a prototype - but 600 5.6 would be more manageable in both front element diameter and weight...

11-1200mm 1.0L IS Macro Nano USM DO  ::)

TSE MPE Soft Focus Blue Spectrum Refractive Optic. There will be no more lens segmentation, there will be no more "lenses" in canon's dictionary, just lens. That sounds spooky for me :(

Most of the times I make macro / close-up photos and sometimes it's pretty hard to take shots of butterflies, grasshoppers, lizards and similar shy animals. So a true macro lens with the following specifications would be great if it's possible to make it (I'm not sure about that).

Minimum focusing distance: 100 or 150 cm
Focal length: between 60 and 100 mm, but lower could be better
Image Stabilization
Full Time Manual focusing (!)
USM for AutoFocus
Maximum magnification: 1:1 (with Extension Tubes or Extenders: 2:1)

If I understand your proposal, you want to achieve magnification 1X (life size) at a distance of 1 meter from the object.

To achieve this magnification, would need a lens with focal length about 500mm. In this case the front element would be gigantic.

On the other hand, I believe it is technically feasible a lens 300mm F5.6 truly Macro, with magnification 1X around 70 centimeters of the object.
