What makes one lens sharper than another? How is Lens Resolving Power Determined?


Great question recently: What is it about lenses that allows one lens to have a higher resolving power than another? Lens resolving power is referring to the detail performance of a lens, and is part of what makes up "sharpness". There is a long answer and a shorter answer, todays video is focusing on the shorter answer and the WHY some are sharper than others, as well as some ways to fix it. In the short answer Ill define the 3 major determinants of lens resolving power, but there are definitely more!
