1) We recently realised that we'd been labelling the MTF scale of the lens widget incorrectly - we were calculating MTF50 in lw/ph, not lp/ph (as the graphs were labeled).* We've corrected the scale, but as a direct consequence the Nyquist line has disappeared.

Is the Nyquist line going to make a comeback? It was useful to estimate the resolving power of the lens vs. the sensor limitation. As it is now, it's more difficult to tell how good lenses really are.
