A patent uncovered by Northlight exhibits the optical formulation for zooming tilt-shift lenses has appeared over on the USPTO.

The patent seems to say two separate and fascinating tilt-shift lens expertise.

The first, the patent exhibits two inside shift modules. This would assist to keep up picture high quality when tilting the lens. The patent exhibits a 50mm f/4 design with the 2 shift modules.

The second a part of the patent exhibits off new zooming tilt-shift lens designs.

Both a  24-100mm f/4 and a 30-80mm f/4 are included as embodiments.

Canon TS-E 24-100mm f/4 embodiment:

  • Focal size: 24.74mm – 49.55mm – 99.94mm
  • F-number: 4.13 – 4.31 – 4.42
  • Half angle of view: 41.17° – 23.59° – 12.21°
  • Image top: 21.64mm – 21.64mm – 21.64mm
  • Total lens size: 159.00mm – 174.75mm – 200.33mm
  • BF: 43.99mm – 55.44mm – 69.75mm

Canon TS-E 30-80mm f/4-6.3 embodiment:

  • Focal size: 31.15mm – 55.06mm – 129.92mm – 39.12mm – 83.69m
  • F-number: 4.52- 5.96 – 6.08 – 5.97 – 6.07
  • Half  angle of view: 34.78° – 21.45° – 9.45° – 28.94° – 14.49°
  • Image top: 21.64mm – 21.64mm- 21.64mm – 21.64mm – 21.64mm
  • Total lens size: 168.22mm – 182.25mm – 205.02mm – 173.45mm – 192.88mm
  • BF: 55.33mm – 69.40mm – 89.40mm – 61.34mm – 78.11mm

These designs are for the EF mount, however we suspect any updates to the extensive angle tilt-shift lenses and even going the zoom route will probably be for the RF mount.
