Are these lenses possible?

1. A micro/macro zoom lens. It seems all offerings from manufacturers are a fixed focal length. I don't count mid-tele zoom lenses where the maker attaches the label macro as the reproduction is not a true 1:1.

2. A zooming tele-converter. Same situation with these. They all offer a fixed percentage increase in focal length.

I'm just curious if there are physical or economic reasons why such lenses are not available.

Thanks,
SP
