Canon has been pushing the limits of lens development for the past few years, and it doesn’t look like they’re going to stop any time soon. Two new patents have come out, and each one has two designs for extreme lenses that are based on well-known DSLR lenses.
Northlight Images has found two new patents for Canon lenses. These patents describe two new lenses. The RF 11-24mm f/4L and the RF 8-24mm f/4L Fisheye lenses are covered by these patents. Both of these lenses have already been made, which means that having a patent does not mean that a product will definitely be sold.
The EF 11-24mm f/4L USM lens got a lot of praise, and when I reviewed it, I was a big fan. It wouldn’t surprise me if Canon changed it so it could be used with the RF mount.
On the other hand, a fisheye lens with a focal length of 8-24 millimeters is something we’ve never seen before. But the high-quality zooming fisheye lens EF 8-15mm f/4L Fisheye USM has gotten a lot of attention. It has also had a good reputation for both how well it takes pictures and how creative it can be. So, an 8-24mm version wouldn’t be out of the ordinary or unwanted. If either of these two things came out on the market, it would make my day.
