Panasonic Ships Samples of Industry’s Largest Glass-molded Aspheric Lens
Panasonic develops the industry’s largest*1 glass-molded aspheric lens measuring 75 mm in diameter. It helps to improve the performance of interchangeable lenses for cameras and projectors.
Osaka, Japan – Panasonic Corporation today announced that it has developed the industry’s largest*1 glass-molded aspheric lens measuring 75 mm in diameter that can be used for interchangeable lenses for cameras and projectors whose size and resolution have been increasingly reduced and enhanced, respectively. The shipping of samples of this large-diameter aspheric lens will start from February 13, 2015. We will also commence with external sales of these lenses.
*1: In the category of glass-molded aspheric lenses. As of February13, 2015, according Panasonic’s data
Interchangeable lenses for cameras and projectors are required to be small with a high resolution, in addition to conforming to the trend of having a large diameter and wide angle. There have been growing needs for large-diameter aspheric lenses that help reduce the number of parts involved.We have developed the industry’s largest*1 glass-molded aspheric lens/mirror with a diameter of 75 mm by taking full advantage of our engineering capabilities and production expertise that have been refined through development and production of LUMIX digital cameras and other products. We have also established mass production technology for preventing cloudiness and cracks and for maintaining shape precision in the process of molding large-diameter lenses. This lens enables a reduction in the number of parts by about 25% compared with comparable conventional products.
These lens have the following features.
