Paper Abstract

Classical and subjective methods, such as resolving power tests, star tests and aberra-tion measurements and the like, have been used in the inspection and evaluation of imaging system performance in China so far for a long time. Beginning from the 1960s,situation in this field is changing. In this paper some types of NSF and OTF measuring equipments developed in China within about 10 years after 1965 are briefly described. Performance of some higher precision OTF measuring equipment is given in some detail. In 1976, comparative MTF measurements for two standard lenses among some labo-ratories using different arrangements were carried out, and results of this study are given. Some discussions are given about problems concerning the assessment methods and the selection of characteristic spatial frequency. The paper also gives a survey about our practice in simplified NSF test conditions and proposed criteria of image quality for photographic lenses.
