Description

  The present invention relates to an information device having a zoom lens and a photographing function.

In recent years, digital cameras that are remarkably widespread are required to have higher performance and smaller size, and zoom lenses mounted as photographing lenses are also required to have both higher performance and smaller size.
In terms of miniaturization, the zoom lens must first reduce the overall lens length (distance from the lens surface closest to the object side to the image plane) when used, and the lens groups can be stored with a reduced thickness. Minimizing the overall length is also an important factor in achieving downsizing.

  In consideration of application to a high-end digital camera, it is necessary for the enhancement of the performance of the zoom lens to have a resolving power corresponding to an image sensor exceeding at least 8 million, preferably 10 million pixels, over the entire zoom range.

  Furthermore, there are many users who desire a wider angle of view of the photographing lens, and it is desirable that the half angle of view at the wide angle end of the zoom lens is 38 degrees or more. Half angle of view: 38 degrees corresponds to a focal length of 28 mm in terms of a 35 mm silver salt camera (so-called Leica version).

  In addition, there is a strong demand for a large zoom ratio, and a zoom ratio of about 8 times is becoming common sense, and a further higher zoom ratio is required.

  Although there are many types of zoom lenses for digital cameras, it is difficult to reduce the total thickness of all the lens systems, and it is not suitable for miniaturization in a group structure of five or more groups.

  Well known as a type suitable for high zooming and large aperture, in order from the object side, a first lens group having a positive focal length, a second lens group having a negative focal length, a positive For example, those described in Patent Documents 1 to 5 are known as a third lens group having a focal length and a fourth lens group having a positive focal length.

  Among the positive, negative, positive, and positive zoom lens groups described in these patent documents, the half-field angle of 38 degrees or more, a zoom ratio exceeding 8 times, and performance capable of handling 8 million pixels. There is nothing to have together.

  For example, what is described in Patent Document 1 has a wide angle of view of a half angle of view at the wide angle end: 40 degrees, but the zoom ratio is about 5 times, and what is described in Patent Document 2 is a wide angle. Half angle of view at the end: Wide angle of about 40 degrees, and the zoom ratio is as large as about 9 times, but the distortion at the wide angle end is 10% or more, and there is no room for improvement in terms of performance.

  As a specific example, Patent Document 3 discloses a zoom ratio as high as 9.5 times, but a half angle of view at the wide angle end is around 32 degrees.

  The ones described in Patent Documents 4 and 5 have good performance and wide angle, but there is still no room for improvement in terms of zoom ratio.

  As a general method for reducing the size of a zoom lens, it is known to increase the power of each lens group and “reduce the number of lenses”. However, if this method is performed simply, it will be difficult to correct various aberrations, and the decentering sensitivity of each component lens group (deterioration of imaging performance due to decentering of the lens) will increase, maintaining high optical performance. Tends to be difficult.

  When trying to achieve a wide angle of view while implementing this method, it is more difficult to “correct the various aberrations while suppressing the size of the entire lens system” by increasing the height of off-axis rays and increasing distortion. It becomes.

  In view of the circumstances described above, the present invention is particularly suitable as a zoom lens for a small and high-performance digital camera, and has a half angle of view at the wide angle end of 38 degrees or more, a zoom ratio exceeding 9 times, and imaging exceeding at least 8 million pixels. It is an object of the present invention to realize a zoom lens capable of realizing the resolving power corresponding to the element, and further to realize an imaging device using such a zoom lens.

  The zoom lens according to the present invention includes 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 positive refraction in order from the object side to the image side. A fourth lens group of force is disposed, and an aperture stop is disposed between the second lens group and the third lens group.

Zooming is performed by “the lens groups move independently”.
The positions of the first lens group and the third lens group at the telephoto end are “on the object side relative to the position at the wide-angle end”.

The “first lens group” includes, in order from the object side, two lenses, a negative meniscus lens convex on the object side and a positive lens having a convex surface on the object side.
The “second lens group” includes, in order from the object side, a biconcave negative lens having an aspheric surface on at least one surface and having a refractive power on the image side larger than that on the object side, a negative lens having a concave surface on the image side, and the object side It consists of three positive lenses having a convex surface.

The imaging magnification at the wide-angle end of the second lens group: β2w, the imaging magnification at the telephoto end of the second lens group: β2t, the focal length of the entire system at the wide-angle end: fw, and the focal length of the entire system at the telephoto end: ft ,conditions:
(1) 0.3 <| (β2t / β2w) / (ft / fw) | <0.8
(Claim 1).

In the zoom lens according to claim 1, the focal length of the entire system at the wide-angle end: fw, and the focal length of the first lens group: f1 are:
(2) 5.0 <f1 / fw <8.0
Is preferably satisfied (claim 2).

  In the zoom lens according to claim 1 or 2, the biconcave negative lens located closest to the object side in the second lens group is preferably a double-sided aspheric surface (claim 3).

In the zoom lens according to claim 3, the refractive index: N23 and anomalous dispersion: Δθgf23 for the d-line of the material of the positive lens located closest to the image side in the second lens group are:
(3) 0.025 <Δθgf23
(4) 1.8 <N23
Is preferably satisfied (claim 4).

Here, the anomalous dispersion of the glass material: Δθgf is expressed by the following formula: the refractive index of the Fraunhofer line with respect to the g line: ng, the refractive index with respect to the F line: nF, and the refractive index with respect to the C line: nC.
θgF = (ng−nF) / (nF−nC)
The two-dimensional coordinates of the orthogonal two axes having the partial dispersion ratio defined by: θgF as the vertical axis and the Abbe number: νd as the horizontal axis are considered. On this two-dimensional coordinate, the coordinate point of the reference glass type: K7 (νd = 60 .49, θgF = 0.5436) and the reference glass type: when the straight line connecting the coordinate point of F2 (νd = 36.26, θgF = 0.5828) is the “standard line”, the partial dispersion ratio of the glass type: It is defined as “amount of separation in the vertical axis direction from the standard line” on the two-dimensional coordinate plane of θgF.

  Anomalous dispersion in condition (4): “23” in Δθgf23 means a positive lens that is the third lens from the object side of the second lens group.

  The anomalous dispersibility is “positive” when the glass material partial dispersion ratio: θgF is above the reference line (+ side of the vertical axis) and “negative” when it is below the reference line in the above two-dimensional coordinates. "

  The zoom lens according to any one of claims 1 to 4 is preferably configured such that the third lens group includes “three lenses of a positive lens, a positive lens, and a negative lens in order from the object side”. Preferably, the fourth lens group in the zoom lens according to any one of claims 1 to 5 is “a single positive lens, and at least one surface is aspheric”. 6).

The zoom lens according to any one of claims 1 to 6, wherein the focal length of the entire system at the wide-angle end: fw and the focal length of the entire system at the telephoto end: ft are the conditions:
(5) 11> ft / fw> 9.0
It can be satisfied (claim 7).

  The “information device having a photographing function” of the present invention is an information device having the zoom lens according to any one of claims 1 to 7 as a photographing optical system (claim 8), and an object image by the zoom lens. Can be configured to form an image on the light receiving surface of the image sensor (claim 9), specifically, it can be configured as a “portable information terminal device” (claim 10).

  To supplement the explanation, when miniaturizing, zooming, and improving the performance of a zoom lens, set an appropriate refractive power for each lens group and set the lens configuration within each lens group appropriately. There is a need to.

At the telephoto end, the position of the first lens group is located “on the object side relative to the position at the wide-angle end”, so that the image of the first lens group that is an object for the second lens group is more transferred to the second lens group. It can be close to each other, contributing to an improvement in the zoom ratio.
In addition, by shortening the optical total length at the wide-angle end, it is possible to “reduce the lens barrel feeding time when starting the camera”, and in addition, by extending the optical total length at the telephoto end, Performance degradation can be suppressed.
Considering that the first lens group and the second lens group move as described above and reduce the amount of extension of the fourth lens group, the position of the third lens group at the telephoto end is more than the position at the wide-angle end. It should be located on the object side.

  In the zoom lens according to the present invention, the second lens group serves as a “main variable magnification group” and is an important lens group.

Condition (1) is that the second lens group as the main variable magnification group, that is, the second variable at the telephoto end and the wide angle end with respect to the variable magnification ratio ft / fw which is the denominator of the parameter of condition (1). This represents the ratio of the imaging magnification ratio of the lens group: β2t / β2w.
When the parameter of the condition (1) becomes small, it means that the zooming function shared by the second lens group becomes small. If the zooming share becomes too small beyond the lower limit of the condition (1), the The “movement amount of the other lens group” for obtaining the magnification becomes excessive, the total lens length increases, and it may be difficult to reduce the size of the zoom lens.
On the other hand, if the upper limit of the condition (1) is exceeded and the “variation sharing of the second lens group” becomes too large, the refractive power of the second lens group becomes excessive, and there is a possibility that the demand for assembly accuracy becomes too high. . In addition, the movement amount of the second lens group due to zooming may be excessive and the total lens length may increase.

  More preferably, the parameter of the condition (1) satisfies the following condition (1A) that is slightly narrower than the condition (1).

  (1A) 0.35 <| (β2t / β2w) / (ft / fw) | <0.55.

  Condition (2) is a condition relating to the first lens group, and defines the balance of power with respect to the entire system of the first lens group at the wide angle end.

When the parameter (f1 / fw) of the condition (2) is smaller than the lower limit value: 5.0, the positive power of the first lens unit becomes relatively strong and the amount of aberration generated becomes excessive. There is a risk that a large amount of distortion and aberration will occur, making it difficult to correct each aberration.
Conversely, if the parameter: f1 / fw exceeds the upper limit: 8.0, the refractive power of the first lens group becomes relatively small, which is advantageous for aberration correction, but the front lens of the first lens group. The diameter and the “size when the zoom lens is accommodated” are increased, which may make it difficult to reduce the size.

  In claim 3, the most object side lens of the second lens group is a “biconcave lens”, but in this configuration, “the first surface of the second group having negative power as a whole” is concave on the object side. .

  By doing in this way, it becomes possible to apply a stronger negative power to the “high position light beam” in the second lens group.

  In addition, in the second lens group having negative power as a whole, the “first surface on which the light rays of each angle of view are most separated” is a concave surface on the object side, thereby reducing the diameter of the third lens group. It can be reached more effectively.

  Needless to say, the reduction in the diameter of the third lens group has a direct effect on reducing the volume and weight of the entire optical system, but the third lens group is retracted from the optical axis when retracted. In the case of the group to be saved, it is also effective for saving space at the save destination and reducing load at the time of save.

  Further, although the biconcave negative lens located closest to the object side in the second lens group is a “double-sided aspheric surface”, the number of constituent lenses in the second lens group can be reduced by doing so. Is possible. In this way, “collecting aspheric surfaces into one lens” widens the selection range of glass types used for other lenses, which is advantageous for aberration correction.

With the configuration of the fourth aspect, in particular, it is possible to satisfactorily correct “a magnification chromatic aberration and an axial chromatic aberration that increase at the telephoto end”.
When the parameters of the conditions (3) and (4) exceed the lower limits of these conditions, the anomalous dispersibility of the positive lens located closest to the image side of the second lens group tends to be insufficient, and the magnification at the telephoto end. Correction of chromatic aberration and axial chromatic aberration may be difficult.
If the lower limit value of the condition (4) is exceeded, the positive refractive power of the positive lens must be maintained with the curvature radius of the lens surface being reduced, and as a result, the thickness of the lens increases. There is a risk of hindering downsizing of the entire zoom lens system.

  If the third lens group is configured as “three elements composed of a positive lens, a positive lens, and a negative lens in order from the object side”, the zoom ratio from the wide angle end to the telephoto end exceeds 8 times. Even in a zoom lens with a high zoom ratio, it is easy to satisfactorily correct aberrations such as chromatic aberration over the entire zoom range.

  In the zoom lens according to the present invention, the first to fourth lens groups move independently during zooming, but the fourth lens group positioned closest to the image side is a single positive lens. The group moving mechanism is simplified, the moving energy can be reduced, and a focus group can be obtained.

  Also, by making at least one surface of the positive lens aspherical, various aberrations that cannot be corrected by the first to third lens groups can be corrected well by the aspherical surface of the fourth lens group. It becomes possible.

  The condition (5) of claim 7 defines the zoom ratio of the zoom lens, and the range of the zoom ratio is “9 to 11 times”.

  As described above, according to the present invention, a “new zoom lens and imaging device” can be realized. According to the present invention, it is possible to realize a “zoom lens that is small, sufficiently corrected for aberrations, and capable of accommodating an image sensor with at least 8 million pixels” as in a specific example described later. Therefore, by using such a zoom lens, it is possible to realize a “imaging device such as a digital camera” that is small and has good performance.

  Hereinafter, embodiments will be described.

Embodiments of the zoom lens are shown in FIG. 1, FIG. 5, FIG. 9, and FIG. In order to avoid complications, the symbols are shared in these drawings.
The zoom lenses shown in these figures correspond to Examples 1 to 4 described later in accordance with the above order of the figures.

  Each of the above drawings shows the lens and group configuration of the zoom lens, and the movement of each lens group accompanying zooming. The upper part of each figure is “Lens group arrangement at the wide-angle end”, the middle part is “Lens group arrangement at the intermediate focal length”, the lower part is “Lens group arrangement at the telephoto end”, and the arrows are “with zooming of each lens group The state of movement "is shown.

  The zoom lens shown in each of the above figures, in order from the object side (left side of the figure) to the image side (right side of the figure), has a first lens group G1 having a positive refractive power and a first lens unit having a negative refractive power. A second lens group G2, a third lens group G3 having a positive refractive power, and a fourth lens group G4 having a positive refractive power, and an aperture stop S is disposed between the second lens group G2 and the third lens group G3. Thus, each lens group moves independently to perform zooming.

  During zooming from the wide-angle end to the telephoto end, the first lens group G1 and the third lens group G3 move monotonously on the optical axis toward the object side.

  Accordingly, the positions of the first lens group G1 and the third lens group G3 at the telephoto end (the lowermost stage in the figure) are set closer to the object side than at the wide-angle end (the uppermost stage in the figure).

  On the other hand, the second lens group “moves monotonously to the image side” upon zooming from the wide-angle end to the telephoto end, and the fourth lens group G4 moves toward the object side at the beginning of zooming from the wide-angle end. It moves so as to return to the image side after passing the intermediate focal length.

  Further, as shown in the figure, the aperture stop S is also displaced independently of the lens group, but the displacement is “monotonic movement toward the object side” upon zooming from the wide-angle end to the telephoto end.

  The first lens group G1 includes, in order from the object side, a negative meniscus lens that is convex on the object side, and a positive lens that has a convex surface on the object side. The second lens group G2 is refracted on the image side rather than the object side in order from the object side. It consists of a biconcave negative lens having a large force, a negative lens having a concave surface on the image side, and a positive lens having a convex surface on the object side.

  The third lens group G3 includes three lenses in order from the object side: a positive lens, a positive lens, and a negative lens. The positive lens and negative lens on the image side are cemented lenses.

  The fourth lens group G4 is a single positive lens.

  As shown in specific examples described later, the zoom lenses of FIGS. 1, 5, 9, and 13 satisfy the conditions (1) to (5).

  1, 5, 9, and 13 indicate “various filters (optical low-pass filter, infrared cut filter, etc.)” disposed on the image plane side of the fourth lens group G4. The “cover glass (seal glass)” of an image sensor such as a CCD sensor is shown as one transparent parallel plate equivalent to these.
