14-30mm f/4 Patent Added to the PhotonsToPhotos Optical Bench
6

The Optical Bench is a simple ray tracer that goes hand-in-hand with the PhotonsToPhotos Optics Primer.

Here's one of the examples presented in the patent:

The Optical Bench is interactive so if you follow the link you can see the other focal lengths, zoom in on the image,  etc.
(And other lenses, a 50mm f/0.9 patent is also there.)

If can be a bit tedious to enter optical prescriptions from patents but if you're aware of any other worthy candidates let me know by email or Private Message (PM).
(Thanks to Eric Calabros for pointing this one out.)

If you follow this stuff ... I'm a little surprised not to see the sensor stack as part of the prescription as it is for most mirrorless lens designs.
