The experimental and quantitative study of the measurement of the lateral spherical aberration with the shearing interferometer using Fourier imaging and the moiré method is given. When the aberration of a camera lens with small f/number(1.7) is measured with an optical arrangement employing the spherical wavefront as a reference at the observation plane, the distortion correction of the obtained fringes is necessary. However, the fringe pattern directly illustrating the lateral spherical aberration can be obtained by the proposed optical arrangement using the plane reference wavefront, without correcting the fringe distortion.
