What are good Optics books which are comparable to Hecht's Optics in terms of content and organization but not too wordy?

You want a book that covers the content in Hecht but not as thoroughly?

Can you recommend me a good optics book that is at about the level of Hecht's book? I find the book too wordy and there are no solved problems.
