Interested in Customizations?

We offer several customizations for our lenses. Contact us to discuss feasibility, Minimum Order Quantities, and NRE requirements.

  • Custom filters (bandpass, dual notch, etc..)
  • Customized higher F# 
  • Barrel mechanical design adjustments (e.g. active alignment, ingress protection)
  • Hydrophobic coating on front optical surface
  • Preassembly with M12 lens holders to reduce anodization debris and match torque
  • Optical data (MTF, EFL, etc..) with serialized unit-level traceability

We also consider full custom lens designs starting from 5,000pcs.
