Self-stirring lens mug

Lens mugs are nothing new and can be bought for a few dollars. However, this Canon 24-105mm F4 lens mug adds something new to the game: it stirs your drinks, as you can see in the video below. It’s surprising how much the lens mug looks like the original EF 24-105mm F4L IS lens.

The self-stirring EF 24-105mm F4L IS lens mug is available for around $13 at Amazon.

Is this the patent for the next EF 24-105mm F4L IS lens?

Ef 24-105mm F4L IS

A few weeks ago a rumor suggested that Canon may announce a new EF 24-105mm F4L IS lens along with the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV. Both are expected to be announced in August, ready for Photokina 2016.

This may easily be the pertinent patent for the new EF 24-105mm F4L IS Mark II.

New Canon EF 24-105 F4L IS lens coming with EOS 5D Mark IV, rumor suggests [CW3]

New Canon EF 24-105 F4L IS Lens Coming With EOS 5D Mark IV, Rumor Suggests [CW3]

A new rumor suggests Canon will announce a replacement for the venerable Canon EF 24-105mm F4L IS USM lens.

The Canon EF 24-105mm F4L IS Mark II is expected to be announced before Photokina 2016, together with the upcoming Canon EOS 5D Mark IV, also expected to be announced in August 2016.

The Canon EF 24-105mm F4L IS USM was announced in 2004, a new version is entirely plausible. The EF 24-105mm F4L IS was the typical kit lens for Canon’s full-frame DSLRs.

A few days ago, we had a possible leak of an image of the EOS 5D Mark IV. The picture was posted on Instagram and soon after it was removed.

Stay tuned for more!
