it eliminates vignette effectively and minimizes optical errors which is often
associated with photomicrograph by consumer digital camera.

Low price adapters often have one of following problems
which are often associated with digital camera photomicrography.
1.  @Geometry distortion  The image at the peripheral area is distorted and
out of focus (low resolution) when compare to the center area.
2.  @Linearity Image looks distorted (Barrel distortion) especially
at the peripheral area.
3.  @Light and shade gap Difference in brightness level between center and
peripheral area even though light is evenly diffused.
4.  @Scotoma/Luminous point  White/Black spot may appear on the image because of
internal]reflection in the lens and lens tube.
5.  @Vignette Magnification and optical design error, or fundamental
structural defect often causes vignette.

By responding to the needs to the customer over many years,
we have overcome these problems and finally developed High-Precision Relay Lens.
Now our adapters are highly acclaimed for its quality and even often receive customer's
complement that it exceeds Nikon/Olympus photomicrograph system !!
