A newly designed non-telecentric projection zoom lens is proposed for a mini-projector with LED light sources. The projection lens consists of six spherical lenses. The zoom ratio of the projection lens is 1.1. At the wide condition, the working F/# can maintain at 2.4 and the throw ratio can operate at 1.23. The root mean square (RMS) spot sizes of all fields are smaller than 15 μm for all zoom ranges. The optical distortion and the TV distortion were suppressed to be smaller than 1.5% and 1%, respectively. For the image quality issue, the modulation transfer function (MTF) value for all fields is above 0.4 at 46 lp/mm for all zoom conditions. Even when the tolerance error was considered, the MTF value for all fields is still above 0.3 for all zoom conditions. Using this non-telecentric projection zoom lens, a very sharp image could be achieved with low cost. This low cost projection lens is very suitable for business applications.
