Egami, the Japanese Photography blog, has discovered a new Canon patent for a 3.8-380mm f/2.3-7 lens design to fit a PowerShot camera. This essentially makes it a 100x zoom lens.
The current Canon SX60 has a 60x zoom but other manufacturers have already exceeded that so it's no surprise Canon plans to retake the crown soon but the one-upmanship continues. Kind of silly, in my opinion.
