Canon Patent: Macro Lens With Variable Soft Focus For FF Mirrorless Cameras

Soft Focus
Drawing from the patent literature

And yet another Canon patent for RF mount lenses: a macro lens with variable soft focus.

Canon patent application P2021-47297A (Japan) discusses optical designs for a macro lens with soft focus for a full frame mirrorless camera, hence we guess for the EOS R system. The patent was spotted by the guys who spot most of the Canon patents you hear of: Hi Lows Note.
