Paper Abstract

In the past photographic "taking" lenses and, in particular, those for the motion picture industry i.e. cinematographic lenses have had a mixed career due to inconsistencies between the processes of lens design, manufacture, testing and calibration and practical assessment in the customer domain. Usually these inconsistencies can be attributed to differences between the comparison of, a lens design "scientifically" made and final evaluation in an "artistic" manner. The following paper addresses the processes of lens design, manufacture, testing and calibration using a combination of acquired practical experience and modern test and calibration methods. Various performance aspects are separately addressed and considered in terms of different means of measurement.
