Re: clinical Versus un-clinical?

Nbanja, I think when people speak of a clinical rendering they're saying the image is very crisp and sharp. Aspheric lenses in lens systems are there to reduce aberrations, particularly spherical aberrations where the outer most rays come to a focus further behind or infront of the focus of the rays close to the optic axis. This might be desirable for some imagery but you and I know there's more to photography than clean sharp images. It's often the aberrations causing some image degradation that makes an image more appealing. This is why some prefer the pre aspheric lenses.
