Camera lens properties

Camera lens properties

A camera lens (also known as photographic lens, objective lens or photographic objective) is an optical lens or assembly of lenses used in conjunction with a camera body and mechanism to make images of objects either on photographic film or on other media capable of storing an image chemically or electronically.
While in principle a simple convex lens will suffice, in practice a compound lens made up of a number of optical lens elements is required to correct (as much as possible) the many optical aberrations that arise. Some aberrations will be present in any lens system. It is the job of the lens designer to balance these out and produce a design that is suitable for photographic use and possibly mass production.
A lens may be permanently fixed to a camera, or it may be interchangeable with lenses of different focal lengths, apertures, and other properties.

Lens type

With photo lenses, a further distinction is made according to the angle of view which determines the focal length for a given image format.

Telephoto lens
i

Telephoto lens

In photography and cinematography, a telephoto lens is a specific type of a long-focus lens in which the physical length of the lens is shorter than the focal length. This is achieved by incorporating a special lens group known as a telephoto group that extends the light path to create a long-focus lens in a much shorter overall design. The angle of view and other effects of long-focus lenses are the same for telephoto lenses of the same specified focal length. Long-focal-length lenses are often informally referred to as telephoto lenses although this is technically incorrect: a telephoto lens specifically incorporates the telephoto group.

Wide angle lens
i

Wide angle lens

In photography and cinematography, a wide-angle lens refers to a lens whose focal length is substantially smaller than the focal length of a normal lens for a given film plane. This type of lens allows more of the scene to be included in the photograph, which is useful in architectural, interior and landscape photography where the photographer may not be able to move farther from the scene to photograph it.

Super zoom lens
i

Super zoom lens

The term superzoom or hyperzoom refers to photographic zoom lenses with unconventionally large focal length factors, typically more than 5× or even ranging beyond 15×.

More information...

Lens mount
i

Lens mount

A lens mount is an interface — mechanical and often also electrical — between a photographic camera body and a lens. It is confined to cameras where the body allows interchangeable lenses, most usually the single lens reflex type or any movie camera of 16 mm or higher gauge. Lens mounts are also used to connect optical components in instrumentation that may not involve a camera, such as the modular components used in optical laboratory prototyping which join via C-mount or T-mount elements.

Focal length
i

Focal length

The focal length of an optical system is a measure of how strongly it converges (focuses) or diverges (diffuses) light. A system with a shorter focal length has greater optical power than one with a long focal length.

Focal Length APS-C / DX (35mm film equivalent)
i

Focal Length APS-C / DX (35mm film equivalent)

In photography, the 35 mm equivalent focal length is a measure that indicates the angle of view of a particular combination of a camera lens and film or sensor size. The term is useful because most photographers experienced with interchangeable lenses are most familiar with the 35 mm film format.

Optical zoom

A zoom lens is a mechanical assembly of lens elements with the ability to vary its focal length (and thus angle of view), as opposed to a fixed focal length (FFL) lens.

Focusing

i

Focusing

In geometrical optics, a focus, also called an image point, is the point where light rays originating from a point on the object converge. Although the focus is conceptually a point, physically the focus has a spatial extent, called the blur circle. This non-ideal focusing may be caused by aberrations of the imaging optics. In the absence of significant aberrations, the smallest possible blur circle is the Airy disc, which is caused by diffraction from the optical system's aperture. Aberrations tend to get worse as the aperture diameter increases, while the Airy circle is smallest for large apertures.

Autofocus

Autofocus

Autofocus (or AF) is a feature of some optical systems that allows them to obtain (and in some systems to also continuously maintain) correct focus on a subject, instead of requiring the operator to adjust focus manually.

Diaphgragm properties

i

Diaphgragm properties

In optics, a diaphragm is a thin opaque structure with an opening (aperture) at its center. The role of the diaphragm is to stop the passage of light, except for the light passing through the aperture.

More information...

Minimum aperture f/
i

Minimum aperture f/

In optics, an aperture is a hole or an opening through which light travels. More specifically, the aperture of an optical system is the opening that determines the cone angle of a bundle of rays that come to a focus in the image plane. The aperture determines how collimated the admitted rays are, which is of great importance for the appearance at the image plane. If an aperture is narrow, then highly collimated rays are admitted, resulting in a sharp focus at the image plane. If an aperture is wide, then uncollimated rays are admitted, resulting in a sharp focus only for rays with a certain focal length. This means that a wide aperture results in an image that is sharp around what the lens is focusing on and blurred otherwise. The aperture also determines how many of the incoming rays are actually admitted and thus how much light reaches the image plane (the narrower the aperture, the darker the image for a given exposure time).

Edition 04/2014 - Insgesamt bietet das Modell gute Leistungen und auch an der Verarbeitung gibt es nichts auszusetzen. dabei sind Verzeichnungs- und Vignettierungswerte zwar nicht perfekt aber dennoch noch akzeptabel. Abblenden geht dann aber auf Koten einer schwächeren Bildmitte, wobei der AF sowohl schnell als auch leise arbeitet.

Ist dieses Objektiv mit meiner Sony Alpha 350 kompatibel?

Accepted answer

So wie ich das sehe, sollte dies kein Problem sein.
Denn in Sachen Bildsensor-Format (APS-C), wie in Sachen Bajonett (A bzw Alpha) passen Objektiv und Kamera zueinander.

DT 18-135mm f/3,5-5,6 SAM, APS-C A-Mount

Super Preis-Leistung ! Super Reise-Zoom ! Scharfes Objektiv ! Wenig Verzeichnung !

Ich habe das Reisezoom anstelle des Tamrons 18-270mm gekauft. Mit diesem war ich eigentlich nie richtig zufrieden : Starke und sichtbare Randunschärfen, starke Verzeichnung, Herausgleiten des Objektivtubus beim Tragen um den Hals.
Nach einem sehr guten rating im Internet habe ich nun dieses Sony Reisezoom gekauft. Nach 1500 Bildern kann ich sagen : Meine Erwartungen wurden voll erfüllt !! Sehr knackige Schärfe bis zum Rand , wenig Verzeichnung nur im grössten WW, Kein Herausgleiten des Objektivtubus beim Herumtragen. Auch die Fokussierung funktioniert mit meiner Alpha-77-II bestens.more
