Patent: Canon EF 200-600mm f/4.5-5.6 IS

A patent for a zoom range smaller super telephoto has emerged. The optical formula is for an EF 200-600mm f/4.5-5.6 IS. We’ve heard in the past that Canon was working on slower super telephoto lens, and a zoom makes a lot of sense.

Patent Publication No. 2015-212724

  • Published 2015.11.26

Canon does need a slower 600mm option in their lineup, as Tamron and Sigma continue to sell a lot of them.
