Dual Pixel AF was true innovation when first launched by Canon on the EOS 70D.…
Here is another Canon patent application dealing with a lens for the Canon EOS R full frame mirrorless system.
Canon patent application P2020-30251A (Japan) discusses optical formulas for a 13-21mm f/2.8 lens for a full frame mirrorless camera system, i.e. for the EOS R system.
- Zoom ratio: 1.58
- Focal length: 13.40 17.30 21.20 mm
- F number: 2.88 2.88 2.88
- Half angle of view: 58.23 51.35 45.58
- Image height: 21.64 21.64 21.64 mm
- Lens length: 150.15 136.89 130.04 mm
- Back focus: 20.96 25.13 29.31 mm
This might well be a lens that goes into production, sooner or later.
