Canon Patent Application: Super Telephotos

This patent application is about reducing the thermal expansion and contraction that occurs of the lens barrel.

Current methods of reducing the effect include Canon's signature white color on the lenses, and in this patent they mention they have a heat insulating member inside of the lens.  The concern is that this heat insulation increases the size (and I would imagine the weight) of the lens as well as the cost of the lens.

This patent application deals with how to reduce the effect on the optical performance when temperature changes occur on the lens.

There are several embodiments of lenses mentioned in this document.  They are mostly secondary to the patent application.
