    This is exactly what success looks like in the form of cheap low dispersion glass H-FK61 - it costs less than many lanthanum crowns and heavy flints. However, judging by the picture, the lens has a length of ~400+ mm, that is, the teleshortening is about 0.8, and according to the MTF, this lens is clearly far from apochromatic. With a more interesting glass, I was able to calculate a 500/6.3 lens for the spectrum from 400 to 1000 microns, within 8 lenses, moreover, the teleshortening was 0.72 (the total length from the first lens to the matrix is ​​only 360 mm for a 500 mm FR), format 44x33 mm , and the MTF at 10 mm-1 was 0.91 in the center on open, at 30 mm-1 – 0.67 in the center on open, with a slow drop towards the corner of the 44x33 mm frame by 0.12 units for 10 mm-1 and by 0.3 units at 30 mm -1 – the result is much better than the lens shown here.

      An ordinary reader of Radozhiva and a lover of Gelikov feels out of place

        Okay, then it’s simpler: Tair-3 is better!!!111!

      If it's not a secret, what do you think? What theoretical basis is needed? I've been curious to read something on this topic for a long time.

      • Rodion

        Zemax. You need knowledge of geometric optics, the theory of geometric and wave aberration, a little bit of materials science and, in fact, a manual for using the software.

    It’s strange that the Chinese didn’t attach the APO nameplate to it (the optical design has ED glass).
    And it’s surprising (I agree with Rodion here) that teleshortening could be made more comfortable. Which would reduce the length and weight.
    A specially designed 1,4 teleextender and a tele-hood are included in the kit.

    • Rodion

      So he's not even close, apparently. The correction here is 100% achromatic, although the secondary spectrum on the covered one is clearly not very large. But they could stick it on, that would be enough for them.
      I think if they had used H-FK71 or H-FK95 (fluorite analogues) rather than H-FK61 (barium fluoride analogue), then they would have called it apo. But the scheme in this case would be more complicated and more expensive, at least for the reason that these glasses have a lower refractive index and higher chemical activity - FK71, FK95 cannot be made either as the first lens, nor as the last one, nor as a lens near the diaphragm.
      They didn’t really do tele-shortening for a simple reason - the greater the tele-shortening, the more difficult it is to achieve high optical quality.

  • Sergei

    A similar lens was developed in the 90s at Arsenal, Kyiv.
    And there are also eight lenses.

    • Andy From Far Away

      Interestingly, the Ukrainian version covered a circle area 4 times larger than TTartisan, but at the same time weighed exactly the same 1600 grams.

  • Sergei

    I took a closer look at the description of the subject.
    The manufacturer does not recommend carrying the lens by the tripod foot. Probably a bit weak.
    The included lens hood is too short for this type of TV.
    When taking photos with Sony mirrorless cameras (full frame), there is some vignetting.

    The Tartisans were in too much of a hurry...
