New Big White Canon Super Telephoto Prime Lenses Coming in 2018

It seems that Canon is working hard for two big events in 2018: World Cup in Russia and Olympic Winter Games in South Korea. Canon recently filed several new telephoto prime lens patents at the USPTO. The range of formulas is quite vast, from EF 300mm f/2.8L IS to EF 800mm f/5.6L IS.

Canon already patented the EF 600mm f/4 DO IS USM lens, and the prototype of this lens was shown at Canon EXPO in September 2015. In addition to this EF 600mm f/4 DO IS USM lens, Canon is expected to announce some more big white super telephoto prime lenses in 2018, probably an updated EF 200mm f/2L IS and EF 800mm f/5.6L IS, not confirmed yet…

Northlight-Images uncovered a lot of the patent applications, you can view them all at the USPTO. [12345]
