From an early lens nonetheless being synthetic to be used in reasonably cheap cameras to designs made attainable via such strategies as lens coating, rare-earth glasses, and computing device aided lens layout and trying out, the writer information each one significant increase in layout and fabrication. The ebook explains how and why every one new lens style was once constructed, and why such a lot of them have given that been deserted. This authoritative historical past of lens know-how additionally comprises short biographies of numerous striking lens designers and brands of the past.
