Please define IQ as it relates to lenses for me.
Why, do you think you have a stupid lens?
IQ just means image quality.
Chromatic aberration, resolution, distortion, and sharpness all fall into the IQ area.
The optical quality of a lens tends to be assessed in quantitative terms; resolution at different apertures, (lack of) vignetting and aberrations...
Then there's the more qualitative and subjective aspects, such as the "bokeh" or appearance of the out-of-focus areas and highlights.
Personally with regard to IQ and lenses, I prefer to think in terms of Lens Quality rather than Image Quality. A lens by itself can't produce an image of any quality.
Great lens = high IQ!
if you replace a cheap kit lens with another cheap kit lens you have low IQ
How much more can we milk this one?
I thought IQ stands for intelligence quotient.
Low IQ = Stupid Lens
Doesn't Stanford-Binet test for IQ?
