Canon Patent for 12-32mm T3.5 and a 15-47mm T2.8 Cinema Lenses

Canon has filed a new  in Japan for two Cinema lenses. The patent describes the 12-32mm T3.5 and 15-47mm T2.8 lenses designed for the EOS Cinema cameras.

The rumor mill is already in talks of the C300 Mark II and C500 Mark II Cinema EOS camcorders for the NAB 2015 show. We can expect at least one cinema lens announcement from Canon for the event.
