Polish translation:Obiektyw !!!
Explanation:
Without a doubt. Soczewka is a optical term whereas obiektyw is a photographic term.

By the way, are you sure it's 0.50 mm. That woudl make it one hell of a superwide angle lens.

obiektyw o ogniskowej 0.50 mm


Explanation:
Camera lenses have different focal lengths (in milimeters).
Short lenses (14mm - 35mm) are wide-angle lenses and "see" more of what is around. They are used for example for shooting indoors, architecture or landscapes.

Long lenses (75mm - 1200mm) are telephoto lenses and see only a narrow angle. They are used for shooting distant action and sports or wildlife.

Standard lenses are lenses with focal length of around 50mm. I reckon, that your lens is actually a 50mm lens not a 0.50mm lens.

It is very hard to find lenses with focal lengths shorter than 14 mm.
A 14mm lens can see about 113 degrees, which is enough to photograph a six-foot subject from three feet away!! (using a conventional 35mm camera)

I suspect that there is some sort of spelling error in that 0.50mm, because I have never heard of a lens shorter than 6mm.

I advise checking this figure with your outsourcer.

Hope that it helps you out, Ivona.
