A new Canon patent application for RF mount lenses with "Defocus Smoothing" (DS) optical technology.…
Canon filed a patent for a EF 28-560mm f/2.8-5.6 optical formula that seems to be for an “L” lens (if I got the machine translated description right).
This is the second patent for a superzoom lens, after a crazy patent for a EF 40-800mm F4.5-5.6 lens. Hard to say if this patents will ever hit the market. Good to know Canon is working on such ideas.
