Canon Patent Application: Zoom lens for 1" sensor sizes
This patent application is for a zoom lens from 24mm to 95mm equivalent focal length for a 1" sensor size.
It's good to note that this has slightly less range than the lens that is already in the G7X Mark II, already. However, this is a faster lens, starting at 1.6-2.6 versus the 1.8-2.8 of the existing lens.
The elements that Canon is looking to improve with this patent application is downsizing the entire lens and a thinning of the lens when it is retracted, while maintaining a high level of optical performance.
