Ken Rockwell: Lens Sharpness

Ken Rockwell is wrong. Not all lenses is sharp.

http://www.kenrockwell.com/tech/lens-sharpness.htm

"Photographic lenses, used properly, have always been sharp, even at the dawn of photography in the 1840s. Optical design is a much older science than photography. The reasons some photos aren't sharp rarely have anything to do with the lens."

He says. But some lenses does become sharp. Thats just common knowledge.

"Some men (never women) worry themselves silly about lens sharpness. When I started serious photography in the 1970s, I was warned that there is a segment of the hobby where all people do is take pictures of brick walls and newspaper classifieds, but never make any photos of anything worthwhile."

Thats just silly I never heard that some people wate film and digital files for shooting walls. Why would they just shoot walls.

I think he doesnt know what talks about.

I recommend you dont trust Ken Rockwell. He isnt really smart
