Abstract
A brief outline is given of the development of the more significant types of photographic objective lens that have been introduced since the invention of photography some 145 years ago. Many other forms have been tried, but because they were inferior to, or more expensive than, existing types, they were eventually abandoned. The use of the modern electronic computer has enabled designers to experiment with more complex arrangements, some of which are now regularly manufactured.
