While I do have some understanding about patents, I'm not currently too clued up on the details.
With a filing date of January 2012, and a publication date of July 2013, does any of this indicate when a lens might be in production / release? Or is this just a 'prototype'?
I'm in the market for a good 50mm, preferably Canon, ideal with IS. Any aperture between f/1.4 and f/2. My core requirements are great IQ wide open: sharp, great bokeh, low CA, strong contrast, USM focussing.
If Canon bring a new 50mm lens to the market similar to the recently released EF 35mm f/2 USM IS, I'll be very happy! Let's see what this will bring.
Looking forward to any insights folks on this forum can give about time-frame and possibility of actual production.
