Canon Patent: 11-24mm f/4 IS, 12-24mm f/2.8 IS, And Already Released RF 14-35mm f/4L IS

Canon Patent

A new week, a new Canon patent application. More lenses for the RF mount and one already released lens.

Canon patent application 2020-199535 (Japan) seems to describe the optical formula for the already released RF 14-35mm f/4L IS, and for two more wide angle zoom lenses for the RF mount: 11-24mm f/4 IS and 12-24mm f/2.8 IS.

PROBLEM TO BE SOLVED: To provide a zoom lens capable of achieving both wide angle of view and miniaturization, and further maintaining high optical performance even at the time of vibration isolation.
