Optics Theory - This forum is aimed towards the TECHNICAL side of photographic OPTICS THEORY. There will be some overlap by camera/manufacturer, but this forum is for the heavy duty tech discussions. This is NOT the place to discuss a specific lens or lens line, do that in the appropriate forum. This is the forum to discuss optics or lenses in general, to learn about the tech behind the lenses and images. IF you have a question about a specific lens, post it in the forum about that type of camera, NOT HERE.

What does ASPH mean to you?

I don't mean "Is the Leikor Bloktron 42mm 1.3 ASPH a good lens?", I mean what do you understand about "aspheric" *photographic* lenses? What are they for AFAYK? Are there pros and cons? What level of insight would you need to part with 2x the cash? 4x? Shut-up-and-take-my-money... umm... 'times'?
