By on

Egami, the Japanese Photography Blog has identified more patents filed by Canon, Japan. The patents refer to a number of lens designs : 50 mm f/1.4, 50 mm f/1.2, 45mm f/1.6, 60mm f/1.8, and describe an apochromatic design that aims to reduce chromatic aberration.

  • In many large-diameter Gaussian secondary spectrum of axial chromatic aberration
    • This problem occurs when using glass and others with the same Abbe number, a lens that is different partial dispersion ratio
    • When used in a positive lens lanthanum flint glass small partial dispersion ratio
    • When used in a negative lens of flint glass titanium large partial dispersion ratio
  • Canon patent
    • Using a lens with a partial dispersion ratio appropriate correcting the axial chromatic aberration secondary spectrum
    • The concave lens surface adjacent to the aperture, coma aberration correction, the sagittal flare
