Canon Patent for RF 13-21mm f/2.8L Lens for EOS R System

By on

Here is another patent application of a wide-angle zoom RF lens for the Canon EOS R full frame mirrorless system. The product is the Canon RF 13-21mm f/2.8L Lens.

We already have the latest Canon RF 15-35mm F2.8 L IS USM lens which is a ultra-wide-angle zoom lens for Canon’s full frame mirrorless system cameras such as EOS R and EOS RP.

Now a new Canon patent application P2020-30251A (Japan) discusses optical formulas for a RF 13-21mm f/2.8L lens for a full frame mirrorless camera system, i.e. for the EOS R system.
