A patent for two cinema lens optical formulas has been made public. Both formulas are for wide angle lenses, one is a 12-32mm t/3.5 and the other a 15.5-47mm t/2.8. NAB 2015 is just over a month away and we do expect at least one cinema lens announcement from Canon.

Full patent specs are after the break.
