stopped down MTF

Disagreeing with the current thread heading - I consider the Nikon site poor for MTF - because - unlike several other brands - it does not include an often important f8 MTF in addition to wide open MTF.

Oh yes, the information there is very limited indeed. Since somebody pointed to a Nikon site, with no MTF at all, I wanted to show that Nikon gives a handle for MTF cross comparisons among their lenses.

I did show open and stopped down + through focus MTF for the AF-S 105 f/1.4 lens (at 10 20 30 40 50 c/mm), which is in reasonably close agreement with the focused fully open MTF at 10 and 30 c/mm shown by Nikon.

Maybe that was too much detail to raise much interest.
