We have developed a high-power zoom lens for PowerShot SX30IS, which is the Canon compact digital camera with 35× zoom ratio lens (f = 4.3–150.5/F 2.7–5.8). This taking lens attains a compact size by PNPNP zoom type. And the taking lens attains the high resolution by a material of “Hi Index Ultra Low Dispersion”, which we call “Hi-UD lens”.

Key words: Hi-UD lens, PNPNP zoom type
