A Multi-Objective approach for lens design optimization was verified. The optimization problem was approached by addressing simultaneously, but separately, image quality and system tolerancing. In contrast to other previous published methods, the error functions were not combined into a single merit function. As a result the method returns a set of nondominated solutions that generates a Pareto Front. Our method resulted in alternate and useful insights about the trade off solutions for a lens design problem. This Multi-objective optimization can conveniently be implemented with evolutionary methods of optimization that have established success in lens design. We provided an example of the insights and usefulness of our approach in the design of a Telephoto lens system using NSGA-II, a popular multiobjective evolutionary optimization algorithm.
