Canon Patent For 10mm f/2.8 Lens For Full Frame Sensor (EOS R?)

Canon Patent

Hi Lows Note spotted a Canon patent application (2019-040219) for a 10mm f/2.8 lens for full frame cameras. I’m not the expert but given the back focus distance I think it is for a mirrorless system, hence for the Canon EOS R.

  • Focal length: 10.30 mm
  • F number: 2.88
  • Half angle of view: 64.54
  • Image height: 21.64 mm
  • Lens length: 124.58 mm
  • Back focus: 38.00 mm

More Canon patent applications are listed here. Some particularly interesting patent applications we think might get into production in the next few years are these:
