Canon Patent: 15-45mm f/4.6-8 For Fixed Lens Full Frame Mirrorless Camera

Fixed Lens
Drawing from the patnt literature

Here is an interesting Canon patent for a lens featured on a fixed lens full frame mirrorless camera.

Canon might be set to release a camera with a full frame sensor and a fixed lens. Something other manufacturer already offer, like the Sony RX1 R. Canon patent application P2021-26196A (Japan) discusses the optical formulas for a lens to be featured on this kind of camera, a 15-45mm f/4.6-8.

  • Zoom ratio: 2.92
  • Focal length: 14.95 28.12 43.68 mm
  • F number: 4.62 6.22 8.00
  • Half angle of view: 55.35 37.57 26.35
  • Image height: 21.64 21.64 21.64 mm
  • Lens length: 92.22 86.07 89.94 mm
  • Back focus: 4.95 17.00 30.06 mm

I wouldn’t be surprised if Canon brings the EOS R technology to a fixed lens full frame mirrorless camera. And I am pretty sure we will see some rumors pointing in that direction soon after this patent makes its rounds ;-)

We think the technology discussed in the patent might get into production within the next years. More Canon patents are listed here. Some particularly interesting patent applications we think might get into production are these:
