  Olympus Microscopy Resource Center: Anatomy of the Microscope - Microscope Objectives
Objectives are designed to image specimens either with air or a medium of higher refractive index between the front lens and the specimen.
The magnification of an infinity-corrected objective is calculated by dividing the reference focal length by the focal length of the objective lens.
Objectives of lower magnification often have a rear focal plane that is exterior to the barrel, located in the thread area or within the microscope nosepiece.

A photographic lens (or more correctly, objective) is an integrated system comprising one or more simple optical lens elements, used for an optical telescope, camera or microscope.
Objective lenses or lens systems are also used in playing and recording optical media, such as CDs.
The lens elements are made of a transparent material.

 Nikon MicroscopyU: Introduction to Microscope Objectives
The objective is the most difficult component of an optical microscope to design and assemble, and is the first element that light encounters as it proceeds from the specimen to the image plane.
As is the case with most oil immersion objectives, the apochromat illustrated in Figure 1 is equipped with a spring-loaded retractable nosecone assembly that protects the front lens elements and the specimen from collision damage.
Although the objective featured in Figure 1 is designed to operate utilizing oil as the imaging medium between the objective front lens and specimen, other objectives have front lens elements that allow them to be use either in air or immersed in water, glycerin, or a other specialized hydrocarbon-based oils.

An objective lens assembly according to claim 1, wherein a bottom portion of the helicoidal screw on said outer tube member is formed by a conical surface centered on the optical axis.
An objective lens assembly according to claim 7, wherein said at least one groove is formed by cutting out a flat top of the main ridge of said helicoidal screw in such manner that no flat portion remains on the top of the main ridge.

 Howstuffworks "How Light Microscopes Work"
Because the objective lens is large, it brings the image of the object to a focus at some distance away, which is why telescopes are much longer than microscopes.
Instead, the objective lens of a microscope is small and spherical, which means that it has a much shorter focal length on either side.
The condenser is a lens system that focuses the light from the source onto a tiny, bright spot of the specimen, which is the same area that the objective lens examines.

 Topic 43. The Field Lens
In other words, even though the objective lens formed an image of the tip of the original object, that point is not visible through the second lens since no rays from that point can ever strike it.
The bottom line is that the brightness of the image seen through the final eye-piece lens gradually gets dimmer for object points further and further from the axis, and there are points on the object which cannot be seen at all through the eye-piece lens.
As an example, the effect of the field lens on the red rays is shown in the figure.

We all know that 10X means that the objective lens has an effective magnification of ten times life size and when combined in the compound with a 10X ocular lens will give a final magnification of 100X (10 X 10).
After the imprint of the magnification on any quality objective lens, there is usually a slash followed by a number which may be anything from 0.035 to 1.4.
The mechanical tube length (between the objective flange and the eyepiece seating face) is normally 160 (in mm) for older objective lenses or (infinity for infinity-corrected objectives).

 Nikon MicroscopyU: Anatomy of the Microscope - Oil Immersion: Interactive Java Tutorial
A dramatic increase in numerical aperture is observed when the objective is designed to operate with an immersion medium such as oil, glycerin, or water between the front lens and the specimen cover glass.
One of the most important factors in determining the resolution of an objective is the angular aperture, which has a practical upper limit of about 72 degrees (with a sine value of 0.95).
Presented in Figure 1 are the aplanatic refractions that occur at the first two lens elements in a typical apochromatic oil immersion objective.

 Twin objective lens in TEM
A symmetric objective has an important consequence: the first (upper) half of the objective lens acts like a third condenser lens, and so in truth there are two beam cross- overs between C2 and the specimen, as shown in the next diagram.
Assume that the horizontal dotted line is at the focal length of the lower part of the objective lens pre-field: we can tell this from the right-most diagram, where the illumination in the specimen place is parallel and hence, by definition, the previous cross-over is at the focal length.
Of course in reality, the objective pre-field is one continuous lens, and so it is quite wrong to think of straight rays passing through two discrete lens, but the net effect is the same.

 Microscope World Objective Lenses
Objective lenses are the lenses of a microscope closest to the object and are the most important single part of your microscope.
Not to be confused with the term "achromatic" is the correction induced in the objective lens to adjust for focusing errors caused by field curvature.
Since a lens is curved, the sharpness of the image may be a bit off at the outer edges of your field of view.

 The objective lens of a TEM, the heart of the electron microscope
The magnification of objective lens is determined by the ratio of the distances between its object plane (the specimen) and its image plane (what we have called ‘the first image plane’).
In fact, if the objective lens is mis-aligned, the errors it introduces will so huge that no matter what we do with the other lenses, we will never be able to correct the error.
As the objective lens is changed, we focus on different layers of this radiation pattern, which will appear to shift laterally because of the tilted inclination of the illumination.
