MTF Chart

A MTF chart plots the contrast and resolution of a lens from the center to its edges against a “perfect” lens that would transmit 100% of the light that passes through it. MTF (Modulation Transfer Function) describes how well a lens can reproduce fine details, measured as the degree of contrast achieved between finely spaced lines.
