10 elements in 8 groups:
- 1 aspherical lens
Aspherical (ASPH) lenses reduce size and weight, effectively
preventing spherical and distortion aberration.
For lenses that are capable of compensating distortion, the horizontal axis of the MTF shows the distance from the center of the corrected image.
