Canon has filed a new patent for 3.8-380mm f/2.3-7 lens, which is designed for a PowerShot camera. Yes, that’s right, this is a 100x zoom lens patent for a PowerShot camera. The Canon PowerShot SX70 was supposed to be launched with a 100x optical zoom lens, as the company has patented such lens for cameras with 1/3.2-inch-type image sensors. And this 100x zoom lens patent is a good sign that Canon will announce the PowerShot SX70 camera in the near future.
