Tamron Filed a Patent for a 10mm f/2.8 Fisheye Lens

Egami spotted a new patent filed by Tamron. The new Tamron patent describes a 10mm f/2.8 and 10mm f/1.8 fisheye lenses for APS-C based DSLR cameras.

The pending patent shows Tamron 10mm f/2.8 and 10mm f/1.8 fisheye lenses. These lenses are expected to have a reasonable weight and size. We hope Tamron introduce an AF capable and affordable price than the current Nikon 10.5mm f/2.8G ED AF DX Fisheye lens.

See below for the patent details translated by machine.
