  The present invention has been made in view of such a situation in the prior art, and an object of the present invention is to provide a high-performance zoom lens having a high retractable thickness and a high-magnification zoom lens and an imaging apparatus using the zoom lens.

The first zoom lens of the present invention that achieves the above object, in order from the object side, is a first lens group having a positive refractive power, a second lens group having a negative refractive power, and a third lens group having a positive refractive power, A zoom lens having a four-group configuration including a fourth lens group having positive refractive power,
When zooming from the wide-angle end to the telephoto end,
An air gap between the first lens group and the second lens group is increased;
An air gap between the second lens group and the third lens group is reduced;
In order to increase the air gap between the third lens group and the fourth lens group,
Each of the first lens group, the second lens group, the third lens group, and the fourth lens group moves,
The first lens group includes one negative lens and one positive lens in order from the object side.
The second lens group includes two negative lenses and one positive lens in order from the object side.
The third lens group includes four or less lenses.
The following conditional expression is satisfied.

0.3 <f 3 / f 4 <1.4 (1)
Where f 3 is the focal length of the third lens group,
f 4 : focal length of the fourth lens group,
It is.

  Hereinafter, the reason and action of the above-described configuration in the first zoom lens of the present invention will be described.

  In the negative leading type in which the first lens unit has negative refractive power, the zoom ratio can be up to about 4 times.

  In the first zoom lens, in order from the object side, a first lens group having a positive refractive power, a second lens group having a negative refractive power, a third lens group having a positive refractive power, and a fourth lens having a positive refractive power. As a zoom lens having a four-group structure composed of a group, the zoom ratio is about 8 times or more.

  When zooming from the wide-angle end to the telephoto end, the air gap between the first lens group and the second lens group increases, the air gap between the second lens group and the third lens group decreases, and the third lens Each lens group is moved so that the air space between the group and the fourth lens group is increased, so that the burden of zooming is shared by both the second lens group and the third lens group.

  When such a lens group power arrangement and movement method is adopted, the diameter of the first lens group becomes large. Therefore, if the first lens group is composed of three or more lenses, the thickness of the group can be reduced. Can not. Therefore, the first lens group is composed of one negative lens and one positive lens.

  In addition, in order to obtain a zoom ratio with the second lens group, it is necessary to secure a space for zooming by reducing the thickness of the group while having power. For this reason, the second lens group includes two negative lenses and one positive lens.

  The third lens group is composed of four or less lenses in order to reduce the thickness of the group while providing an imaging function and satisfactorily suppressing aberrations.

  The third lens group and the fourth lens group satisfy the following conditional expressions.

0.3 <f 3 / f 4 <1.4 (1)
Where f 3 is the focal length of the third lens group,
f 4 : focal length of the fourth lens group,
It is.

  If the lower limit of 0.3 of the conditional expression (1) is exceeded, the power of the fourth lens group becomes too weak, and the amount of movement in image plane correction or focusing becomes large, which is disadvantageous for making the lens frame compact. Become. On the other hand, if the upper limit of 1.4 is exceeded, the power of the third lens group becomes weak, making it difficult to obtain a zooming effect, which is disadvantageous for high zooming.

The second zoom lens of the present invention includes, in order from the object side, a first lens group having a positive refractive power, a second lens group having a negative refractive power, a third lens group having a positive refractive power, and a first lens group having a positive refractive power. A zoom lens having a four-group structure including four lens groups,
When zooming from the wide-angle end to the telephoto end,
An air gap between the first lens group and the second lens group is increased;
An air gap between the second lens group and the third lens group is reduced;
In order to increase the air gap between the third lens group and the fourth lens group,
Each of the first lens group, the second lens group, the third lens group, and the fourth lens group moves,
The first lens group includes two or less lenses,
The second lens group includes two negative lenses and one positive lens in order from the object side.
The third lens group includes four or less lenses.
The following conditional expression is satisfied.

−23 <dt 0.5dw <−6.0 (2)
However, dt 0.5dw is the distortion of the maximum image height at the wide-angle end, and the unit is%.

  In the negative leading type in which the first lens unit has negative refractive power, the zoom ratio can be up to about 4 times.

  In the first zoom lens, in order from the object side, a first lens group having a positive refractive power, a second lens group having a negative refractive power, a third lens group having a positive refractive power, and a fourth lens having a positive refractive power. As a zoom lens having a four-group structure composed of a group, the zoom ratio is about 8 times or more.

  When zooming from the wide-angle end to the telephoto end, the air gap between the first lens group and the second lens group increases, the air gap between the second lens group and the third lens group decreases, and the third lens Each lens group is moved so that the air space between the group and the fourth lens group is increased, so that the burden of zooming is shared by both the second lens group and the third lens group.

  When such a lens group power arrangement and movement method is adopted, the diameter of the first lens group becomes large. Therefore, if the first lens group is composed of three or more lenses, the thickness of the group can be reduced. Can not. Therefore, the first lens group is composed of two or less lenses.

  In addition, in order to obtain a zoom ratio with the second lens group, it is necessary to secure a space for zooming by reducing the thickness of the group while having power. For this reason, the second lens group includes two negative lenses and one positive lens.

  The third lens group is composed of four or less lenses in order to reduce the thickness of the group while providing an imaging function and satisfactorily suppressing aberrations.

  The following conditional expression is satisfied regarding the distortion of the maximum image height at the wide-angle end.

−23 <dt 0.5dw <−6.0 (2)
However, dt 0.5dw is the distortion of the maximum image height at the wide-angle end, and the unit is%.

  If the lower limit of the conditional expression (2) is −23, the aberration balance is lost and the performance is degraded. In addition, correction in image processing also increases processing time and makes correction difficult. If it is larger than the upper limit of −6.0, the amount of chromatic aberration generated in the first lens group increases, and the performance deteriorates.

  When zooming from the wide-angle end to the telephoto end, the air gap between the first lens group and the second lens group increases, the air gap between the second lens group and the third lens group decreases, and the third lens Each lens group is moved so that the air space between the group and the fourth lens group is increased, so that the burden of zooming is shared by both the second lens group and the third lens group.

  When such a lens group power arrangement and movement method is adopted, the diameter of the first lens group becomes large. Therefore, if the first lens group is composed of three or more lenses, the thickness of the group can be reduced. Can not. Therefore, the first lens group is composed of two or less lenses.

  In addition, in order to obtain a zoom ratio with the second lens group, it is necessary to secure a space for zooming by reducing the thickness of the group while having power. Furthermore, by disposing two air gaps in the second lens group, on-axis and off-axis aberration correction is effectively performed, and the burden on the first lens group and the third lens group can be reduced. The thickness of the group can also be reduced. For this reason, the second lens group is composed of a biconcave lens, a negative lens, and a positive lens in order from the object side, with an air gap therebetween.

  Hereinafter, the reason and operation of the fourth zoom lens according to the present invention will be described. By using two biconcave lenses in the second lens group, including an air lens between them, aberration correction is further facilitated. Become.

The fifth zoom lens according to the present invention includes, in order from the object side, a first lens group having a positive refractive power, a second lens group having a negative refractive power, a third lens group having a positive refractive power, and a first lens group having a positive refractive power.

Where β 2t : lateral magnification of the second lens group at the telephoto end,
β 2w : lateral magnification of the second lens group at the wide-angle end,
It is.

  Hereinafter, the reason and operation of the fifth zoom lens according to the present invention will be described.

  In the negative leading type in which the first lens unit has negative refractive power, the zoom ratio can be up to about 4 times.

  When such a lens group power arrangement and movement method is adopted, the diameter of the first lens group becomes large. Therefore, if the first lens group is composed of three or more lenses, the thickness of the group can be reduced. Can not. Therefore, the first lens group is composed of two or less lenses.

  In addition, in order to obtain a zoom ratio with the second lens group, it is necessary to secure a space for zooming by reducing the thickness of the group while having power. For this reason, the second lens group includes two negative lenses and one positive lens.

Where β 2t : lateral magnification of the second lens group at the telephoto end,
β 2w : lateral magnification of the second lens group at the wide-angle end,
It is.

  If the lower limit of the conditional expression (3) is less than 2.4, the variable magnification burden of the third lens group increases, the amount of movement of the third lens group increases, and the lens unit becomes large. In addition, when the zooming load of the fourth lens group is increased, the aberration in the fourth lens group is increased and the performance is deteriorated.

  In the negative leading type in which the first lens unit has negative refractive power, the zoom ratio can be up to about 4 times.

  In the first zoom lens, in order from the object side, a first lens group having a positive refractive power, a second lens group having a negative refractive power, a third lens group having a positive refractive power, and a fourth lens having a positive refractive power.

It is.

  When the lower limit of 0.01 of conditional expression (4) is not reached, the amount of aberration generated in the first lens group increases, making it difficult to obtain good imaging performance. When the upper limit of the conditional expression (4) is larger than 1.00, it is difficult to perform zooming in a later group while maintaining a reduction in size.

  Furthermore, it is more preferable that the lower limit value of conditional expression (4) is 0.2, further 0.7.

  Hereinafter, the reason and operation of the seventh zoom lens according to the present invention will be described.

  It is more preferable that the above-described first to third and fifth to sixth zoom lenses have a plurality of configurations at the same time.

  For example, the configuration of the first zoom lens and the configuration of the second zoom lens may be provided.

  The configuration of the first zoom lens and the configuration of the third zoom lens may be provided.

  The first zoom lens configuration and the fifth zoom lens configuration may be provided.

  A configuration of a third zoom lens and a configuration of a sixth zoom lens may be provided.

  A fifth zoom lens configuration and a sixth zoom lens configuration may be provided.

  In particular, the seventh zoom lens is more preferably a four-group zoom lens including all the configurations of the first to third and fifth to sixth zoom lenses.

  The eighth zoom lens of the present invention is characterized in that, in the first to seventh zoom lenses, the following conditional expression is satisfied.

0.01 <| f 2 / f t | <0.2 (5)
Where f 2 is the focal length of the second lens group,
f t : focal length of the entire zoom lens system at the telephoto end,
It is.

  Hereinafter, the reason and action of the above-described configuration in the eighth zoom lens of the present invention will be described. When the lower limit of conditional expression (5) is less than 0.01, the amount of aberration generated in the second lens group increases. It is difficult to obtain good imaging performance. If the upper limit of 0.2 is exceeded, the amount of movement increases to perform zooming, and the overall length increases.

  Furthermore, it is more preferable that the lower limit value of conditional expression (5) is 0.1 or 0.15.

  The ninth zoom lens of the present invention is characterized in that, in the first to eighth zoom lenses, the following conditional expression is satisfied.

0.01 <f 3 / ft <0.3 (6)
Where f 3 is the focal length of the third lens group,
f t : focal length of the entire zoom lens system at the telephoto end,
It is.

  Hereinafter, the reason and action of the ninth zoom lens according to the present invention will be described. When the lower limit of 0.01 in the conditional expression (6) is reduced, the amount of aberration generated in the third lens group increases. Therefore, it becomes difficult to obtain good imaging performance, and sufficient back focus cannot be obtained. When the upper limit of 0.3 is exceeded, the zooming action in the third lens group becomes weak, and the total length during zooming on the telephoto side becomes long. Furthermore, since the variation amount of the exit pupil position becomes large, the fluctuation of the incident angle of the imaging element, for example, the CCD at the off-axis image plane position becomes large, which adversely affects shading.

  Furthermore, it is more preferable that the lower limit value of conditional expression (6) is 0.1 or 0.2.

  The tenth zoom lens of the present invention is characterized in that, in the first to ninth zoom lenses, the following conditional expression is satisfied.

0.01 <f 4 / ft <0.55 (7)
Where f 4 is the focal length of the fourth lens group,
f t : focal length of the entire zoom lens system at the telephoto end,
It is.

  Hereinafter, the reason and action of the above-described configuration in the tenth zoom lens of the present invention will be described. If the lower limit of conditional expression (7) is less than 0.01, the amount of aberration generated in the fourth lens group increases. Thus, it is difficult to obtain good imaging performance. When the focal length of the fourth lens group becomes larger than the upper limit of 0.55, it becomes difficult to perform zooming in the subsequent group while maintaining a reduction in size.

  Furthermore, it is more preferable that the lower limit value of conditional expression (7) is 0.1 or 0.25.

  Or it is more preferable when the upper limit of conditional expression (7) is 0.4.

  The eleventh zoom lens of the present invention is characterized in that, in the first to tenth zoom lenses, the following conditional expression is satisfied.

0.5 <L t / f t <1.5 (8)
Where L t is the total length on the optical axis from the entrance surface of the zoom lens to the image surface at the telephoto end,
f t : focal length of the entire zoom lens system at the telephoto end,
It is.

  Hereinafter, the reason and operation of the eleventh zoom lens according to the present invention will be described. If the lower limit of 0.5 of the conditional expression (8) is not satisfied, the first lens group and the second lens group are not satisfied. Since the distance between the lens group and the third lens group and the fourth lens group becomes narrow, it becomes impossible to secure a space necessary for zooming. If the upper limit of 1.5 is exceeded, the total length at the telephoto end becomes long, leading to an increase in the size of the lens unit.

  The twelfth zoom lens of the present invention is characterized in that, in the first to eleventh zoom lenses, the following conditional expression is satisfied.

2.20 <Δ t1g / f w <5.0 (9)
Where Δ t1g is the difference between the position of the first lens group at the wide-angle end and the position at the telephoto end,
f w : focal length of the entire zoom lens system at the wide angle end,
It is.

  Hereinafter, the reason and action of the twelfth zoom lens according to the present invention will be described. When the lower limit of 2.20 of the conditional expression (9) is exceeded, the incident light height at the wide angle end increases. The lens diameter of the first lens group increases, or the space necessary for zooming cannot be secured. If the upper limit of 5.0 is exceeded, the total length at the telephoto end becomes large, and as a result, the lens unit becomes large.

  The thirteenth zoom lens of the present invention is characterized in that, in the first to twelfth zoom lenses, the following conditional expression is satisfied.

8.0 <(D 1t + D 2w ) / f w <10.0 (10)
Where D 1t is the air space between the first lens group and the second lens group at the telephoto end,
D 2w : the air space between the second lens group and the third lens group at the wide-angle end,
f w : focal length of the entire zoom lens system at the wide angle end,
It is.

  The reason and action of the above-described configuration in the thirteenth zoom lens of the present invention will be described below. If the lower limit of the conditional expression (10) is less than 8.0, the space necessary for zooming cannot be secured. When the upper limit of 10.0 is exceeded, the total length at the telephoto end becomes large, and as a result, the lens unit becomes large.

  The fourteenth zoom lens of the present invention is characterized in that, in the first to thirteenth zoom lenses, the following conditional expression is satisfied.

1.05 <(β 2t / β 2w ) / (β 3t / β 3w ) <5.7 (11)
Where β 2t : lateral magnification of the second lens group at the telephoto end,
β 2w : lateral magnification of the second lens group at the wide-angle end,
β 3t : Lateral magnification of the third lens group at the telephoto end,
β 3w : lateral magnification of the third lens unit at the wide-angle end,
It is.

  Hereinafter, the reason and action of the above-described configuration in the fourteenth zoom lens of the present invention will be described. If the lower limit of conditional expression (11) is less than 1.05, the variable magnification burden of the third lens group increases.

  23 to 25 are conceptual diagrams of the configuration of a digital camera according to the present invention in which the zoom lens as described above is incorporated in the photographing optical system 41. FIG. FIG. 23 is a front perspective view showing the appearance of the digital camera 40, FIG. 24 is a rear front view thereof, and FIG. 25 is a schematic perspective plan view showing the configuration of the digital camera 40. However, in FIGS. 23 and 25, the photographing optical system 41 is not retracted. In this example, the digital camera 40 includes a photographing optical system 41 having a photographing optical path 42, a finder optical system 43 having a finder optical path 44, a shutter button 45, a flash 46, a liquid crystal display monitor 47, a focal length change button 61, When the photographing optical system 41 is retracted, including the setting change switch 62, the photographing optical system 41, the finder optical system 43, and the flash 46 are covered with the cover 60 by sliding the cover 60. Then, when the cover 60 is opened and the camera 40 is set to the photographing state, the photographing optical system 41 enters the non-collapsed state of FIG. Photographing is performed through the optical system 41, for example, the zoom lens of the first embodiment. An object image formed by the photographic optical system 41 is formed on the imaging surface of the CCD 49 via the low-pass filter F and the cover glass C subjected to IR cut coating. The object image received by the CCD 49 is displayed as an electronic image on the liquid crystal display monitor 47 provided on the back of the camera via the processing means 51. Further, the processing means 51 is connected to a recording means 52 so that a photographed electronic image can be recorded. The recording means 52 may be provided separately from the processing means 51, or may be configured to perform recording / writing electronically using a floppy disk, memory card, MO, or the like. Further, it may be configured as a silver salt camera in which a silver salt film is arranged in place of the CCD 49.

  Further, a finder objective optical system 53 is disposed on the finder optical path 44. The finder objective optical system 53 includes a plurality of lens groups (three groups in the figure) and two prisms, and includes a zoom optical system whose focal length changes in conjunction with the zoom lens of the photographing optical system 41. The object image formed by the finder objective optical system 53 is formed on the field frame 57 of the erecting prism 55 that is an image erecting member. Behind the erecting prism 55, an eyepiece optical system 59 for guiding the erect image to the observer eyeball E is disposed. A cover member 50 is disposed on the exit side of the eyepiece optical system 59.

  The digital camera 40 configured in this manner has a high performance because the imaging optical system 41 is extremely thin when retracted and the imaging performance is extremely stable in the entire zoom range with high zoom ratio. -Miniaturization can be realized.
