Referring to FIGS. 2A and 2B, FIG. 2A shows a sixpiece microscope lens system in accordance with a second embodiment of the present invention, and FIG. 2B shows, in order from left to right, the image plane curve and the distortion curve of the second embodiment of the present invention. A sixpiece microscope lens system in accordance with the second embodiment of the present invention comprises a stop 200 and a lens group. The lens group comprises, in order from an object side to an image side: a cover glass 291, a first lens element 210, a positioning piece 292, a second lens element 220, a third lens element 230, a fourth lens element 240, a fifth lens element 250, a sixth lens element 260, an IR cut filter 270, and an image plane 280, wherein the sixpiece microscope lens system has a total of six lens elements with refractive power. The cover glass 291, the first lens element 210 and the positioning piece 292 form a front group lens system. The second lens element 220, the third lens element 230, the fourth lens element 240, the fifth lens element 250, the sixth lens element 260 and the IR cut filter 270 form a rear group lens system. The stop 200 is disposed between the positioning piece 292 and an imageside surface 222 of the second lens element 220.
The cover glass 291 made of glass is mainly provided for protecting and isolating the first lens element 210 so as to prevent the first lens element 210 from contacting with the object to be detected (such as, biological fluid), and is located between the object side and an objectside surface 211 of the first lens element 210 and has no influence on the focal length of the sixpiece microscope lens system.
The first lens element 210 with a positive refractive power has the objectside surface 211 being convex near an optical axis 290 and an imageside surface 212 being convex near the optical axis 290, the objectside surface 211 and the imageside surface 212 are aspheric, and the first lens element 210 is made of plastic material.
The positioning piece 292 made of plastic material cooperates with the cover glass 291 to fix the first lens element 210, and is located between the imageside surface 212 of the first lens element 210 and an objectside surface 221 of the second lens element 220 and has no influence on the focal length of the sixpiece microscope lens system.
The second lens element 220 with a positive refractive power has the objectside surface 221 being convex near the optical axis 290 and the imageside surface 222 being convex near the optical axis 290, the objectside surface 221 and the imageside surface 222 are aspheric, and the second lens element 220 is made of plastic material.
The third lens element 230 with a negative refractive power has an objectside surface 231 being concave near the optical axis 290 and an imageside surface 232 being concave near the optical axis 290, the objectside surface 231 and the imageside surface 232 are aspheric, and the third lens element 230 is made of plastic material.
The fourth lens element 240 with a positive refractive power has an objectside surface 241 being convex near the optical axis 290 and an imageside surface 242 being concave near the optical axis 290, the objectside surface 241 and the imageside surface 242 are aspheric, and the fourth lens element 240 is made of plastic material.
The fifth lens element 250 with a positive refractive power has an objectside surface 251 being convex near the optical axis 290 and an imageside surface 252 being convex near the optical axis 290, the objectside surface 251 and the imageside surface 252 are aspheric, and the fifth lens element 250 is made of plastic material.
The fifth lens element 260 with a negative refractive power has an objectside surface 261 being convex near the optical axis 290 and an imageside surface 262 being concave near the optical axis 290, the objectside surface 261 and the imageside surface 262 are aspheric, and the sixth lens element 260 is made of plastic material.

The detailed optical data of the second embodiment is shown in table 3, and the aspheric surface data is shown in table 4.
In the second embodiment, the equation of the aspheric surface profiles of the aforementioned lens elements is the same as the equation of the first embodiment. Also, the definitions of these parameters shown in the following table are the same as those stated in the first embodiment with corresponding values for the second embodiment, so an explanation in this regard will not be provided again.
Moreover, these parameters can be calculated from Table 3 and Table 4 as the following values and satisfy the following conditions:
In the present sixpiece microscope lens system, the cover glass, the positioning piece and the lens elements can be made of plastic or glass. If the lens elements are made of plastic, the cost will be effectively reduced. If the lens elements are made of glass, there is more freedom in distributing the refractive power of the sixpiece microscope lens system. Plastic lens elements can have aspheric surfaces, which allow more design parameter freedom (than spherical surfaces), so as to reduce the aberration and the number of the lens elements, as well as the total track length of the sixpiece microscope lens system.
In the present sixpiece microscope lens system, if the objectside or the imageside surface of the lens elements with refractive power is convex and the location of the convex surface is not defined, the objectside or the imageside surface of the lens elements near the optical axis is convex. If the objectside or the imageside surface of the lens elements is concave and the location of the concave surface is not defined, the objectside or the imageside surface of the lens elements near the optical axis is concave.
The sixpiece microscope lens system of the present invention can be used in focusing optical systems and can obtain better image quality.
While we have shown and described various embodiments in accordance with the present invention, it should be clear to those skilled in the art that further embodiments may be made without departing from the scope of the present invention.
