Since this is a hypothetical (this "perfect lens"), what about a force field lens?

A shaped force field that acted the same as a normal lens - but infinitely variable and adjustable for aberration control.

That would be neat - going from fisheye to 1000mm in a nanosecond, just adjust the field.

I know has been some theoretical — or rather, highly speculative and not reproducible — work done on extremely advanced lens properties, but I think it is safe to treat such things as science fiction for the time being.

I agree, it was just a thought.

But then... so were satellites "just a thought" to A C Clarke, so maybe... who knows?

Don’t tell me you don’t carry Schwarschild-radius adjustable singularities in your back pocket?

How last century...

I hardly ever speak for anybody but myself. In the cases where I do mean to speak generally the statements are likely to be marked as such.
