Abstract

Using Super-XX film, the author investigated the behavior of resolving power when various amounts of lateral chromatic aberration were introduced into the image of an otherwise diffraction-limited lens. The results show that small amounts of lateral chromatic aberration have a strong, adverse effect upon resolving power, indicating that this aberration demands careful correction in photographic lenses required to resolve fine detail.
