Canon also patented a 600mm f/5.6 with what appears to be DO optics, but there's no explicit mention of IS, it would be really surprising if a lens like this didn't have IS.


I agree that any 600mm lens that will be produced will have IS.  however, the version patented does not have IS.

Only a very few of a large number of patents make it to production.

Here is a translation of the 600mm DO patent application.
