In terms of quality, here are the best ten lenses to be found on subminiature cameras -- at least according to William White, who wrote the Book on Subminiature Photography. They are listed in chronological order, NOT by quality. And remember, the size and type of film play at least an equal (or even more important) role in the final product.  In other words, we are taking about the quality of the LENS, which is very different from the quality of the RESULT.  That may sound strange, but it isn't.  A simple example, is that a particle

If YOUR camera's lens isn't included, don't panic -- I'm sure it's number ELEVEN on the list!  P.S. Since White did not consider half-frame cameras to be subminis, none of the many, superb half-frame optics were even considered for his list.
