Canon patent for EF-M 9-18mm f/3.5-4.5 STM lens

canon patent

Something is moving in Canon’s EOS M department. Here we have another Canon patent for an EF-M lens,, a EF-M 9-18mm f/3.5-4.5 STM.

We already have an ultra wide-angle lens for the EOS M system, the EF-M 11-22mm f/4-5.6 IS STM. Will the optic formula described in the Canon patent ever hit the market? Hard to say.
