Canon Patent: 400mm f/2.8, 500mm f/4 & 600mm f/4 For The EOS R System

Canon Patent
Drawing from the patent literature

Ready for the start of the week, here is a new Canon patent application for RF mount lenses.

A new Canon patent application discusses optical formulas for three RF mount lenses:

  • 400mm f/2.8
  • 500mm f/4
  • 600mm f/4

PROBLEM TO BE SOLVED: To obtain an optical system which is lightweight and has chromatic aberration and other aberrations satisfactorily corrected.

Example 1

  • Focal length: 392.00
  • F value: 2.90
  • Half angle of view: 3.16
  • Image height: 21.64
  • Overall length: 360.03
  • Back focus: 31.01

Example 2

  • Focal length: 490.00
  • F value: 4.12
  • Half angle of view: 2.53
  • Image height: 21.64
  • Overall length: 412.08
  • Back focus: 33.39

Example 3

  • Focal length: 588.00
  • F value: 4.12
  • Half angle of view: 2.11
  • Image height: 21.64
  • Overall length: 476.08
  • Back focus: 33.21

This patent application might indeed lead to lenses that will be on sale one day.

The Canon patent application was spotted by asobinet. More Canon patent applications are listed here. Some particularly interesting patent applications we think might get into production are these:
