Patent: New EF-S 18-55 With an LCD Display?
By| June 19, 2018
A patent has surfaced pertaining to aberration reduction in interchangeable lenses.
Unrelated to the patent is an image showing an EF-S 18-55 kit lens with what appears to be an LCD display like we have seen on the Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS II.
The patent does reference a “lens information display”.
We’ve been told that a new kit lens is coming this year, and it’s possible that it will be a new EF-S 18-55 IS. Though we haven’t confirmed a DSLR that could possibly be announced alongside such a lens.
