A patent showing a Canon 10-120mm f/1.8 lens for a 1″ sensor has become public. Such an optical formula may be a remanent from the XC10 development or could appear in a future video camera product. I’m sure a lot of people would have rather seen an f/1.8 lens in the XC10, instead of the f/2.8 lens it comes with.
