Canon 18-45mm f3.5-5.6 Lens for Mirrorless Camera

The Japanese blog Egami (click here for Google Translation) found a patent by Canon for a 18-45mm f3.5-5.6 lens for APS-C-sized sensors that should fit on mirrorless cameras.

Does that mean that Canon will not deliver a mirrorless system camera or does it mean Canon will soon deliver a true mirrorless system cam?? Is the G1 X Canon’s only answer to the growing mirrorless phenomenon? Let’s hope not!

Some specs:

  • spherical aberration ~0.1mm
  • astigmatism < 0.2
  • wide-angle distortion < 11%
  • chromatic aberration ~0.6μm
