You seem to be mixing terms and describing sharpness but calling it resolution.  Resolution only describes how much detail a camera/lens is capable of capturing — and not necessarily the quality of the detail that is captured.

Did you actually read my post?  It seems very unlikely, given your response.

I read it all many times. You said "... I don't think that there is a single meaning of resolution at all".

In fact,  Resolution only describes how much detail a camera/lens is capable of capturing. Mft is how that is measured. The other things you discussed being measured relate more to sharpness. Sharpness is not resolution.

My opinions are my own and not those of DPR or its administration. They carry no 'special' value (except to me and Lacie of course)

So, how is resolution measured? MTF-50 or MTF-20, or maybe MTF-10?
