Canon Patents EF-M 16-50mm F/3.5-5.6

The latest of many mirrorless patents to emerge from the Canon camp this year depicts an EF-M 16-50mm F/3.5-5.6 for APS-C format EOS-M cameras. The spec fits neatly into the “kit lens” genre, so perhaps we may see this lens packaged with a new APS-C EOS-M camera later this year. A camera fitting that description has been the subject of a few rumors over the last year or so, but there are no firm details yet. Check out the translated patent details below:
