By Canon Rumors | November 21, 2016

A patent showing the optical formula for a 6-22mm f/1.4-1.8 for 1 inch sensor has appeared. This lens would have the 35mm equivalent of 28-100mm f/1.4-1.8. We expect this is for an upcoming PowerShot camera, which will likely come for CES in January of 2017.

Canon patents a mount replacement camera system, which is likely related to the soon-to-be-released Cinema EOS C700 and an already available service for the Cinema EOS C300 Mark II. I’m not sure if there’s any reason for this on a DSLR.
