Just when Karl, Johnny, and Simon started to think they knew about lenses, Jason Lane comes along and makes them realize how little they actually know. Why does a Petzval swirl? Why do new high resolution lenses have a gazillion elements? Why is field of view is more important than focal length to a designer? These, and many more questions, are answered in this highly technical episode. Plus, the latest news on glass plate photography!
