Canon Patents New Diffractive Optics Lenses - 300mm f/2.8 and 400mm f/2.8

Canon has applied for two new Diffractive Optics (DO) lens patent. They are the 300mm f/2.8 DO and 400mm f/2.8 DO. My readers know I have owned the EF 400mm f/4 DO IS II since its announcement in 2014 and its predecessor, the Series I lens.

This is an excellent lens for sports and wildlife photography and new DO lenses are rumored to be on next year's Canon's EOS-R camera lineup announcement.
