>>4244974>Sharpness is measured contrast
are you actually retarded or are you just trolling for the lols?
if sharpness was measured contrast, then cooke, panavision, zeiss, nikon, leica, hassy and other worlds best camera lens manufacturers, wouldnt design their lenses around the same fucking thing, they would instead all chase sharpness and resolutions first and everything else second. but guess what? they arent. because sharpness doesnt mean shit. sharpness and resolution come after. for example, zeiss spent just over 1.02 BILLION (not million, BILLION) euro just for research and design of Otus lenses, which were the first (and still to this day the only) full frame lenses ever, to allow small FF sensors to closely replicate medium format tonal reproduction. cooke, panavision, hasselblad and co., are the same way. so again, they spent OVER A BILLION FUCKING EURO on research and design, just to replicate the medium format look. sharpness wasnt even their priority and yet Otus 50 and 100 are still to this day the sharpest full frame lenses ever made, in fact, the lenses are so sharp that they even beat PhaseOnes lenses that were priority DESIGNED to be super sharp and have a huge image circle.
anway, yeah... to put that into perspective, manufacturers like canon, nikon, sony and others in the same boat, only invest 8 digit sums - and thats lower end 8 digits, usually around 15M or even lower for 3rd party manufacturers, could be slightly less could be slightly more, with exceptions of course but NEVER 9 digit sums, let alone over a BILLION.
so yeah... sharpness doesnt mean shit and no sharpness isnt measured contrast.
