Patent: The Next Prosumer DSLR to Get Illuminated Buttons?

Patent: The Next Prosumer DSLR to Get Illuminated Buttons?

By Canon Rumors | November 18, 2017 | Canon Patents

Will Canon finally add illuminated buttons to the back of their prosumer DSLRs? This latest patent seems to show that they just might.

Nikon and Pentax have had illuminated rear buttons for quite some time.

Could the EOS 7D Mark III be the first Canon DSLR to get this feature?

Japan Patent Application JP2017-147019A

Patent: Canon EF-M 15-45mm f/1.8-3.5

Patent: Canon EF-M 15-45mm f/1.8-3.5

By Canon Rumors | November 18, 2017 | Canon Patents

A patent showing a faster version of the EF-M 15-45mm has appeared in the form of three separate optical formulas.

  • EF-M 15-45mm f/1.8-3.5
  • EF-M 15-45mm f/2.0-4.0
  • EF-M 15-45mm f/2.8-5.0

Canon News Summarizes:

It also looks like it may be the first canon lens patent application that I’ve seen that specifically mentions that distortion abberation control happens in camera versus being controlled by the lens.

This would tend to make more of a compact camera approach as the powershots do this already, however Canon M’s do not.

As with all patent applications that we show, this is a patent application.  This illustrates to us what Canon is looking at in their research labs.  It may or may not become a patent, and may or may not even after that be used in a camera system.

Patent: EF-S 15-300mm & EF 28-550mm Optical Formulas

Patent: EF-S 15-300mm & EF 28-550mm Optical Formulas

By Canon Rumors | November 18, 2017 | Canon Patents

A patent application covering two optical formulas for both a full frame and APS-C superzoom have surfaced in Japan.

  • Full Frame: 28-550mm f/3.5-6.3
  • APS-C: 15-300 f/3.5-6.3

I think it’s more likely that we see a replacement for the EF-S 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 IS than a superzoom like this for a full frame DSLR. Though these formulas could be related to a completely different lens.
