We consider the possibility of using generalized lenses in imaging optical systems. We propose using two generalized lenses in a system similar to a Fourier-correlator to obtain a point-to-point mapping, where the second lens is set so that a plane wave is also formed at the output of the system when the incident wave is plane. We show that for generalized lenses with a small deviation of their degree from 2, such a system forms a fairly high-quality image. We use a standard radial photographic chart to test the system, which allows us to determine its key optical characteristics.
