Title:
VARIABLE MAGNIFICATION OPTICAL SYSTEM, IMAGE PICKING-UP DEVICE AND DIGITAL EQUIPMENT
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2008/072466
Kind Code:
A1
Abstract:
The present invention sufficiently corrects various aberrations of color, astigmatism, and the like while achieving a super compact structure device. For that purpose, a variable magnification optical system has first through fourth lens groups provided with negative, positive, negative and positive optical power in turn from an object side, wherein a distance between the first lens group and the fourth lens group becomes narrow at the magnification changing from a wide terminal to a telescopic terminal. The first lens group is comprised of a negative lens and a positive meniscus, and the second lens group is comprised of a biconvex positive lens and a biconcave negative lens and includes aspheric surface. In the case where distances from the apex surface of the lens closest to the object side to an image surface at the wide terminal and the telescopic terminal are TLw and TLt at the object at an infinite distance, respectively, a refractive index difference between the biconvex positive lens and the biconcave negative lens is ΔN2, and an Abbe number difference between them is Δν2, a distance from the apex surface of the positive meniscus lens to the image surface is Lb and a resultant focus distance of the total optical system at the wide angle terminal is fw, the variable magnification optical system satisfies TLw/TLt<1.2, ΔN2>0.15, Δν2>20 and Lb/fw≤1.2.
