It is also the distance from the center of the lens to the imaging plane such as the film or CCD in the camera. An optical system with a short focal length has a better ability to gather light than an optical system with a long focal length. Simply put, the focal length is the distance between the focal point and the vertex of the mirror.
The common lens focal length classifications are: 8mm, 15mm, 24mm, 28mm, 35mm, 50mm, 85mm, 105mm, 135mm, 200mm, 400mm, 600mm, 1200mm, etc., as well as an ultra-telephoto telephoto lens up to 2500mm.

In this system, the unique design of the mirror and prism allows the photographer to directly observe the image through the lens from the viewfinder. Therefore, it is possible to accurately see the same image that the film is about to 'see'.
