The French website Focus Numerique recently had the chance to interview Canon executives at the Utsunomiya L lens factory in Japan. And the Canon executives said that the company is working on a new lens technology.
From the interview (French):
Sans pouvoir vous en dire plus, nous sommes en train de développer une nouvelle technologie qui apportera une réelle valeur ajoutée et permettra de prendre un nouveau type de photo.
Without being permitted to tell you more, we are developing a new technology that will bring real added value and will allow to take a new type of photo.
We currently don’t know what new type of photography they are talking about…If you know anything, leave a comment below.
Reminder: Canon will announce the EF-S 35mm f/2.8 M IS STM lens and Canon PowerShot SX70 HS camera next week on April 6, 2017 in eastern North America.
