“Our tests using real lenses, real cameras, real film and standard exposure conditions returned the following results:
- 35 mm ZM lenses achieve up to 400 line pairs/mm on film. With ZF lenses we achieved about 300 lp/mm.
- medium format lenses from Carl Zeiss for Hasselblad achieve up to 280 (250 mm Superachromat f5..6)
- large format lenses from Carl Zeiss achieve up to 160 (75 mm Biogon f/4.5)”
