Canon 135mm 2.0L IS USM (and others!) Patent Application

While searching back through the US patent applications, we found this one, that at first glance was simply a 85mm 1.4L IS USM patent.

Upon closer examination, there was another embodiment in which we are all quite interested in right now, since the 85mm 1.4L IS is old news ;)

Seems Canon snuck in another embodiment, but this one for the 135mm 2.0L IS.  So this seems like pretty good confirmation that we have a 135 2.0L IS USM in our future, and our greedy little paws sooner than later.

Then after we found that and our excitement calmed down, we looked again to see another 3 embodiments about potential future canon prime upgrades (two of which are pretty much needed - the 85 1.8 and 100 2.0 are pretty long in the tooth)

100mm 2.0 IS

85mm 1.8 IS

300mm 2.8 IS
