Back in September of 2020, I published a patent found by Canon News for what looks to be the upcoming Canon RF 5.2mm f/2.8L VR lens.

This is obviously a niche market lens, but it shows Canon is thinking outside of the box and coming up with new ideas for the RF mount.

Canon RF 5.2mm f/2.8L VR Lens

  • Focal length: 5.57mm
  • F-number: 2.80
  • Half angle of view: 90.00°
  • Image height: 8.75mm
  • Total lens length: 96.00mm
  • BF: 13.50mm

From Japan Patent 2019-033296

In the lens device, since the angle of view of the optical system is relatively narrow and the distance (baseline length) between the optical axes of the two optical systems is short, the realism of the obtained stereoscopic image is not sufficient.  On the other hand, in the imaging apparatus described in Patent Document 1, when the two optical systems to try to increase the base length with a wide-angle of view, lens apparatus is enlarged. In this case, when the lens device is attached to the main body of the imaging device, the grip performance (easiness to hold) may be affected. It is an object of the present invention to provide a lens device that enables stereoscopic photography and does not impair ease of holding.

We will be happy to hear your thoughts
