Phew, thank you, Hans

For a moment I was getting a bit worried that I was the only one seeing the world that way!

There was a time when resolution was often described in lines or line pairs per millimeter.  Remember millimeter?  How confusing was that?

IMO, the least-confused people are those who see the lens first, as an analog projection device with its own set of imperfections, the FOV determined by the sensor size, and then the imaging quality per unit of sensor area.  Every other way of looking at things can be extended from this, with a minimal amount of confusion.  I see so many people chasing their own tales, starting from a position that fails to distinguish between relatives and absolutes.
