Zooms...

When you stand in the same spot and zoom in and out everything in the frame will become equally larger and smaller.

I think that is part of the problem. Many of those older, accepted, but nevertheless wrong explanations come from a time where zooms weren’t as available, or at all, as they are today.

Performing the experiment you suggest was thus not possible, and the wrong attribution of cause and effect - “it’s the lens” - was thus much easier to do.

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.
