Re: Ok I need help with interpreting the math (lenses)

I have seen several posts regarding the maximum resolution power of
our present lenses. How can I look at the MTF charts and
interpolate out exactly how many mpix or to um a lens should be
capable of resolving to for a given sensor size?

MTF gives the % of contrast reproduced by the lens at a given line density (10 and 30 lines/mm in the Canon MTFs). I doubt there is a way to calculate the resolution power from these graphs.
