Canon Patents 15-50mm EF-M Lens

Canon certainly isn’t holding back when it comes to developing mirrorless products lately, the new EF-M 28mm f/3.5 Macro IS STM was announced last week and we have also heard rumors of Canon working on a full frame mirrorless camera. The latest patent to emerge from the Company details a 15-50mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM mirrorless lens for APS-C cameras. The useful focal range and 3.5-5.6 aperture detailed make a strong case for this patent showing an EF-M kit lens destined to appear with future EOS-M series Canon mirrorless bodies. check out the translated details below:
