Qualifications - An Overview

Mirror lens

This is technically known as a catadioptric lens and has an unusual construction of mirrors and lens elements. As well as glass elements there are mirrors at the front and rear to fold the light as it enters the lens. This results in a body that's a little wider than normal, but half the length and much lighter.
