Eclair Cameras: 16mm lenses on 35mm
From: "Alexander" <firstname.lastname@example.org>
I always wondered if conversely the 16mm lenses, like the Schneider 35mm,
are sharper for shooting 35mm ?
Since you have to magnify the 16mm image more 4 more times than the 35mm
image to have it fill the same sized screen, 16mm lenses resolve sharper
than 35mm (circles of confusion and all). So theoretically a 16mm Format
lens will give you a sharper image on 35mm frame, however 16mm lenses
are designed to only cover the 16mm frame (some just barely) and would
vignette horribly on a 35mm frame.
