  • How to reduce the size of the large-aperture super telephoto lens
    • Effective diameter of the first group with the largest
    • I reduce the number of the first group
      • It is necessary to reduce aberration by increasing the number
      • Can not reduce the aberration and reduce the number
    • I increase a refractive power of the first group
      • The thickness of the lens increases, the effect of weight reduction is canceled
      • Impact of manufacturing error is large high refractive index
  • Canon patent
    • The aspherical in the first group
    • Performing a variance of sensitivity was composed of opposite sign component of the first group, and also, prevent an increase in thickness
    • DOE is provided to correct chromatic aberration with a small number of lenses
    • Inner focus
    • Anti-shake
