A lens design problem has been configured for comparison on several different lens design programs and by several different users. The problem sets up a starting point lens of double Gauss form of speed F/2 covering a 30 degree field and then, using only the computer program, the designer must reoptimize the lens for different speeds and fields. As expected, different computer programs resulted in different final lens designs, but different users also got different results using the same program. The conclusions indicate the skill of the designer and amount of effort expended contribute more to the final design than which program is used.
