Patent: Canon EF 1000mm f/5.6 IS DO

Howabout a 1000mm replacement for the EF 800mm f/5.6L IS? A patent showing the optical formula for an EF 1000mm f/5.6 IS DO has appeared.

We’ve seen the prototype for a future EF 600mm f/4 IS DO BR already, and the likelihood of seeing more DO lenses I think is pretty high. A 1000mm lens would be a great replacement for the current 800mm lens.
