Shouldn't a lens create a realistic image similar to what you see with the naked eye?

Why should it? If that where a requirement we would have no fisheyes, no super zooms, no polarizing filters, no tilt lens, etc.

Because artistic effects of photography are fine and great in addition to a true reproduction, but not instead of it. You don't usually take a portrait with a fisheye. If I want a special effect, I can use a special lens or other means to achieve it, but there also should be lenses for a true reproduction of the image.

The point was....not every lens made on earth need " create a realistic image similar to what you see with the naked eye?" It was your question, not mine. The answer, I believe, is a definite no.
