Canon Patent Application: Some Bizarre Full Frame Compact Camera Lenses

This patent application illustrates some pretty crazy lenses, with almost impossible back focus distances.  On a Canon EF lens the back focus (BF) is usually around 44mm, on the EOS R system, the back focus distance is usually around 18mm.  However, these are between 2 and 0mm.  Yes, that is ZERO.  That means the actual back element is directly mounted or connected to the sensor.  Pretty wild.

I suspect such designs would work great on compact cameras where the lens may be very very close to the sensor.   These are also all full frame lenses, so perhaps a compact full frame camera?
