Again, I thank you, Mike!

You've made an excellent point here, Lance, regarding viewing distance, which like enlargement factor, should always be declared when drawing conclusions about the impact of diffraction or defocus on one's ability to achieve a desired resolution (another varriable that should always be declared).

Again, I thank you for seeing the light, Mike! As I replied in the other thread with regards to your brilliant post:

"This has partly been where I have been coming from with regards to the 36Mp sensor and it being desriable, may be not to all, but to plenty of us. Others have gone off in tangents explaining how a FF 36Mp sensor will not assist us, will actually be a step backwards and that all we need is FF 12 or 16MP or whatever, but they miss this very vital point that I pointed out and that you have written about in your long and very interesting very detailed dissertation.

Again, I thank you for being another light of reason!" emoticon - smile
