SEPTEMBER 3, 2009--The new Raptar 50-mm large-format machine-vision lens is designed for use with full-frame 11- and 16-Mpixel sensors. The lens' mechanical design exceeds industry requirements for MTF, relative illumination, and low distortion that is required of systems with high-cost, large-format cameras. It covers a 43-mm diagonal sensor with a 50-mm field of view and focusing range of 0.5 m to infinity. It features a manual iris and focus control with positive, single point focus and iris locks. Lens aperture range is f/2.0-f/22.0 and its angular field is 46.0° diagonal and 37.0° horizontal.
