It would also curb sales of sigma 500mm zooms

However it will never happen, canon I suspect would be more concerned about it affecting sales of the current 400 and 100-400, not to mention the potential loss of super tele sales

Canon are very short sighted in my view and don't appear to see Sigma as competition, even though the sigma  50mm, 35mm, 50-500, 150-500, 150, 120-300, 300-800mm  are taking sales  away

Basically every third party lens bought in a canon mount is a canon lost sale, canon don't appear to see it that way, if they did then their  lens range would move forward much more quickly
