Patent: New PowerShot Lens, 6-22mm f/1.4-1.8 for 1 Inch Sensor

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.
