A patent has surfaced pertaining to aberration reduction in interchangeable lenses.

Unrelated to the patent is an image showing an EF-S 18-55 kit lens with what appears to be an LCD display like we have seen on the Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS II.

The patent does reference a “lens information display”.

We’ve been told that a new kit lens is coming this year, and it’s possible that it will be a new EF-S 18-55 IS. Though we haven’t confirmed a DSLR that could possibly be announced alongside such a lens.

Below is Japan Patent JP2018005130A:
