Descriere

The lens is generally the most expensive and least understood part of any camera. In this book, Rudolf Kingslake traces the historical development of the various types of lenses from Daguerre's invention of photography in 1839 through lenses commonly used today.
From an early lens still being manufactured for use in low-cost cameras to designs made possible through such innovations as lens coating, rare-earth glasses, and computer aided lens design and testing, the author details each major advance in design and fabrication. The book explains how and why each new lens type was developed, and why most of them have since been abandoned. This authoritative history of lens technology also includes brief biographies of several outstanding lens designers and manufacturers of the past.

  • (4/5)
    Interesting book describing the history of the photographic lens from the start of photography until around 1980. One sees the lens evolving from a single two-element telescope objective to very complex lens designs consisting of 20 elements. A little caution is necessary as the author assumes a lot of optics knowledge from the reader and first reading his lens design book might be advisable.
