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

Canon shows pre-production Samples of new Lenses at WPPI 2012

This is a Canon press release. Samples of the recently announced new EF lenses will be shown at the Wedding Photographers Trade Show 2012 starting today, February 20th, in Las Vegas:

WPPI 2012 will be the first U.S. trade show where visitors will be able to see Canon’s latest EF-series interchangeable lenses: pre-production samples of the EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM, EF 24mm f/2.8 IS USM, and EF 28mm f/2.8 IS USM lenses will be shown under glass.

Hmm, «will be shown under glass»? Does it mean no one will be able to test the lenses on a cam? Unfortunately, the press release also states that

also on display at WPPI 2012 is the Canon EOS 5D Mark II Digital SLR camera

;-)
But hold on! Maybe you can put your fingers on the D1 X:

Among the newest Canon EOS Digital SLR cameras on hand at WPPI 2012 is the EOS-1D X Digital SLR, designed to bring professional photography to its next level of success and achievement.
