an other sexy idea would be a super lightweight and compact 100-400 DO L - let's say below 1.3 kg and optically superb - such a lens would find a huge number of interested guys

That's a pretty exotic idea. I guess it would be interesting for those who want a lot of reach in a small and lightweight package. Looking at the 70-300 DO though I don't know if it would be a success.

Plus, the patents for a new 100-400L suggest a similar design to the current one, with possibly a ring zoom instead of push/pull.
