Hi All, I have a general question/comment regarding the practical resolution limit of 35mm pictures. It is my impression that it is usually the lens that is the limiting factor for maximum sharpness in 35mm image capture. A good lens can resolve about 80 lp/mm or more while many other standard lenses struggle to attain 50 lp/mm. Other individuals have commented that the film is typically the limiting factor and I would agree that some films are not capable of resolving much above 40 lp/mm but many can resolve over 100 lp/mm. Furthermore, other argue that the aperture ratio limits what can be resolved, with apertures of f/22 limiting resolution to about 70 lp/mm due to diffraction. I must admit I'm quite skeptical of individuals claiming their DSLR superior to film because their 10MP camera is supposedly capable of resolving 200 lp/mm. Doubtful, especially when their lens can barely resolve more than 50 lp/mm. So, I guess my question is what in your opinion is the prime limiter of image resolution for 35mm? My perspective is that the lens limits 35mm photographic resolution. You can adjust your aperture and you can use film with good resolving capabilities but you are basically stuck with what your lens can resolve.
