A compact zoom lens design for cell phone is presented. A three groups lens system with five lens element is designed for cell phone camera with 3M pixels and 2.5~3X optical zoom. The first lens is a negative lens with a concave surface facing the object so that, when used for a long focal length, the rear principle plane is moved forwards to shorten the total length of the lens. A positive lens group composed of three lens elements is arranged at the second lens group. By control the optical power of the second lens group, the distortion can be reduced and also shortens the moving distance of the second lens group while zooming. The fifth lens in the third lens group is a positive lens to control the incident angle entering the photosensitive element. It is used for focusing when the object distance has changed.
