Canon Patent: RF 50mm f/1.4 and RF 35mm f/1.4 Lenses For EOS R

Canon Patent

Another Canon patent dealing with lenses for the RF mount, i.e. for Canon’s full frame mirrorless system EOS R.

Canon patent application 2020-181071 (Japan) discusses optical formulas for an RF 50mm F1.4 and an RF 35mm f/1.4 lens. This patent application is particularly interesting since 50mm f/1.4 and 35mm f/1.4 are two very classic lenses for a full frame system.

The patent application seems to reveal a modern and complex optical design with front and rear lenses for optical correction. Moreover, we think it has internal focusing, a small size and a very fast auto-focus. Another two lenses that might go into production.

Canon Might Release Two Versions Of The RF 35mm f/1.2L (one having Defocus Smoothing)

Rf 35mm F/1.2L

Not the first time the Canon RF 35mm f/1.2L lens is rumored. Now, it seems Canon might release two versions of it.

Canon might release a DS version (Defocus Smoothing) of the RF 35mm f/1.2L. They did the same with the RF 85mm f/1.2L, a truly amazing lens.

Both versions of the RF 35mm f/1.2L might get released in the first half of 2021. A patent describing the optical formulas for the RF 35m f/1.2L has been spotted in the past and it is quite likely it refers to the upcoming lens.

Stay tuned.
