Abstract

In this paper the authors discuss the pros and cons of telephoto lenses of old types and a series of improved old types, showing several examples of these. They then describe a series of newly-designed distortionless telephoto lenses consisting of five types with apertures of 1/4.5 to 1/2.8 and covering an angle of approximately 25°.
