Canon patent for 28mm F1.4L and 35mm F1.4L lens with resin elements

canon patent

Canon patent referring to a 28mm F1.4L and to a 35mm F1.4L lens. The interesting point: the patent mentions “resin lenses”. Wait, what? A plastic lens on a Canon L lens?

It’s not “plastic”, obviously. It’s resin, and, according to the patent, such a lens element should have less dispersion and less aberrations.

  • Patent Publication No. 2016-31414
    • Published 2016.3.7
    • Filing date 2014.7.28

I wonder if and when such a lens may go to production.
