Cool, Now now they just need to a 30/35mm 1.8/2 and I'd be happy.

This does make sense. The "LCD" thing didn't seem right, and I was trying to figure out what "s" was on the left. A marking for a screen makes much more sense than a subject.
Case closed. Moving along.
This patent is for a projection lens for an LCD-based video projector.
I guess at least one other person in this thread was on the right track:What is the item labeled "P" in the drawing?
I suppose "P" = projector.
Okay, good point. But I wasn't talking about using a 4//3rds adapter, but a competitor to those cameras by Canon. i.e. could a lens built on spec to this patent be destined for a new Canon APS-C compact mount rather than EF-S, for example something like the Fuji X100 but with interchangeable lenses.
Could this be used on a m4/3 competitor for example, incorporating a fixed length lens but using a kind of digital zoom say 4/5 x?
Its a patent, not a product. Canon files thousands of them a year. Only a very few actually become products.
However, even if there were a adapter, it would not make much sense to mount it to a micro 4/3 camera, there would be no electrical connection, so the aperture would not work. Without control of the aperture, a lens is not going to work out well. It would be, of course, manual focus.
