Canon Filed Patent EF 14mm and EF 17-35mm With Flourite


Canon has filed patent for a wide angle flourite concept. Egami discovered two new Canon patents. Such a patent could be part of a new ultra-wide zoom lens, EF 14-24mm or a replacement to the EF 16-35mm f/2.8 IS II. Egami also thinks it’s possible this patent could be for the EF-M mount.
