1/3-Inch Format Varifocal Lenses Designed for Megapixel Sensors

Commack, N.Y.-based Tamron has introduced a new series of 1/3-inch format varifocal lenses (2.4-6mm F/1.2, 3.0-8mm F/1.0 and 5-50mm F/1.4) designed for security cameras equipped with megapixel count image sensors.

The lenses deliver high resolution and high contrast images that are uniformly sharp from the center to the periphery. In particular, resolution in the image corner is almost double when compared to that of conventional lenses, according to the company. The lenses use aspherical elements and low dispersion optical glass material to minimize various aberrations and ensure high optical quality. Multicoating on the lens surfaces minimize ghosting and flare in backlit situations.
