If you believe that, then why buy a lens? You can get a sharp image without one? Why don'y you start selling them, you can sell sharper lenses for just the cost of a roll of toilet paper.Hi,So you believe a lens with one element is sharpest? Maybe one with no elements is the ultimate?
IMHO, every element added will decrease IQ by a bit, so a lens without IS will have slightly better IQ than lens with IS (when both lens are from the same generation and same grade) under perfect shooting condition.
That would be so. Looking through a hollow tube will always give you the clearest sharpest image. You can not improve the light when it is in it's near perfect unrestricted form.
Multiple lens elements do, in fact correct the various abberations that come from just one element. Thats why the lenses that are sharpest have multiple elements.
Your theory seems pretty badly flawed when compared with the real world.
Well one does need a lens to take a picture!!
It seems correct that one cannot improve on light/optics 'when it is in it's near perfect unrestricted form.'
No flaw here.
