Paper Abstract

My subject this morning is lens testing. It is a subject as old as man's ability to make lenses and it seems a certainty that the first argument over lens quality occurred at the sale of the first lens. As the need for higher quality lenses grew, so grew the gap between the lens manufacturer and the lens user. The lens user primarily concerned that the lens perform adequately in his system and the lens manufacturer trying to provide this lens without really understanding the relationship between that which he could control and the users performance criteria.
