Canon Patents Massive 40-800mm f/4.5-5.6 Lens

A Canon Patent has been published which shows the optical formula for four separate 40-800mm zoom lenses, two for Powershot cameras and two for full frame systems. That is a simply massive zoom range, and if the patent details below are anything to go by, then the full frame version of the lens would be an epic 489mm in length! I wouldn’t be surprised if this thing could actually see into the future! Joking aside though, it would be extremely impressive for Canon to come up with a lens of this type that offered decent sharpness across the zoom range. Will we see on come to retail however? Probably not, it is quite a niche!
