Canon Patent - EF-M 16-80mm f/2.6 Lens

I have just returned from a rather successful wildlife photo trip to India. Witnessed two tiger kills from beginning to end on a Spotted and Sambar Deer plus Elephants and Monkeys mating, in addition to many new bird species for me. Trying to get back to writing my blog and catching up with the latest photography and NAB 2016 news. It will take me a week or two to get back to speed and precious little time to process the photos because by then, my next tour will be here already. I have a very busy Spring and Summer touring season ahead of me. You can see my works on

A new Canon patent for the EF-M 16-80mm f/2.6 lens has surfaced. Canon will be announcing more EF-M lens this year together with a new prosumer mirrorless camera and more prime and medium zoom glass.
