Measurements for quality assurance have to guarantee optical performance of production. Suitable criteria have to be in close connection with the application of the lens. First a simplified criterion to describe focusing with the human eye is given. Several performance criteria can be drived from MTF: MTF value for a characteristic spatial frequency. Integration of MTF value for a characteristic spatial frequency over the whole image field. In connection with this criterion the equality of image performance over the field has to be answered. Integration of MTF up to a limiting spatial frequency. This frequency can be specified by the intersection of MTF curve and threshold curve of the receiver. A classification of optical systems seems to be reasonable to yield characteristic parameters for simplification of performance criteria.
