Default Diverse lens types

Hey guys,

Anyone know of a supplier of small optics that has a good variety of lenses (ie. biconvex, biconcave, asphericals, collimators, cylinders, etc)? I looked into Thorlabs, but getting a varied set of lenses to experiment with wouldn't be very budget-friendly.

I don't mind if they're plastic if the quality is fairly decent. Thanks!

You can take a look at: http://www.edmundoptics.com/ but they are also not budget friendly. If you want something cheap with a few lenses to experiment with you might try DTR's projector optics: https://sites.google.com/site/dtrlpf...-lenses-motors

Thanks, Alan. DTR's kit is nice, but somewhat limiting. May be useful to have around of course, though.

I forgot about this place too: Meredith Instruments - The source for laser surplus you never know what they will have but always some optics.

You could also try Optotronics, they have optics kits, and individual optics.
I don't own any of their optics, but I have purchased lasers from them.
They are a good company to deal with; very fast reply times!

Forgot about them, thanks! Think I ordered some of their mirrors before and they were top notch.
