[Patent] Canon Files Patent For A New 35mm f/1.4 Prime Lens

Egami (machine translated) spotted a new Canon patent. This time it is for a 35mm f/1.4 prime lens. The existing EF 35mm was released in 1998, so it makes sense for Canon to work on a new release of this lens. According to Egami, it looks as if Canon has been working since four years on this lens.
