The focus lies along which line?
Mar 24, 2013

Here is a simple question with the hope that a simple answer is possible.

I'm assuming I know the answer

When focussed at some particular distance, does the focus lie more along the red, or more along the blue line,when using a typical lens on a typical DSLR?

The red line is a circle with the center at the camera, The blue line is a straight line.
