Lenses with built-in vibration-reduction systems to counteract camera shake, apochromatic lens elements for reducing optical aberrations, and ultrasonic lens motors to ensure silent auto-focus operation are some of the preferred technologies for wildlife photography.
Such a range would be disadvantageous to image quality in the normal eye because of severe chromatic aberration; however, the apochromatic lens of the Sidereal Eye enables a much wider spectral range to be focused sharply.
It also features a triple apochromatic lens system, which reduces fringing, dilution of color fidelity, and degradation of resolution.
But it isn't just the focal length that will determine the photographer's choice of lens--other considerations include the provision of a built-in vibration reduction system to counteract camera shake; an ultrasonic lens motor to ensure that autofocus operation is silent; apochromatic lens elements for reducing optical aberrations; and a 'fast' maximum aperture.
The system's components, including the apochromatic lens, were specially designed at the Agfa Optics Centre in Munich, Germany.
