Enlarging the grans
I have read an almost infinite amount of opinions on enlarging lens sharpness.
Lenses get designed and redesigned, apochromatic and other super expensive versions surface.
Now, i don't mean to underestimate a physicist or engineer at work, myself being one. And it's definitely good to keep them nerds off the streets.
My brief analog enlarging experience shows that no matter the lens, i can see the film grain (with a grain focuser, that is) with all my lenses at all magnifications.
So the question:
If two lenses can both project a sharp image of the film grain onto the paper, where the heck does it matter "which lens is sharper"???
(Let's stick with black and white for simplicity.)
Thank you for reading!
Now say something!
