Patent: Integrated Lens for an APS-C Compact Camera?

Camera Lens 18-70 f/2.8-6
A patent has shown up for a lens that is an 18-70 f/2.8-6. It looks like the lens could possibly be for a fixed lens APS-C camera. The PowerShot G1X, while a cool enough camera, didn’t catch on. Canon may not be done exploring a large sensor fixed lens camera.

Personally, I’d be more into a Sony RX1 style camera for a few dollars less.

As a side note, the G1X was announced last year for CES, and that’s coming up in January.
