The article gives a formula without defining the valuables.
- Even worse, it doesn't even give the actual formula for the diffraction limit. It gives the first "approximation" of the limit. LesPaul75talk 21:22, 15 February 2011 (UTC)
- I added the defs. I don't know of a better formula, but that's the one in the Abbe memorial; I'm not sure why it's called an approximation; maybe just that there's no exact answer. Dicklyon (talk) 06:37, 16 February 2011 (UTC)
Could the article give some examples with which people might be more familiar, for instance photography? I read the article but really didn't understand what it was talking about. -mattbuck (Talk) 18:53, 15 August 2013 (UTC)
Implications for digital photography
This section has many faults, including not citing its sources, but the main one is that it is just wrong. The concept of a pixel-size-based 'diffraction limit' for a digital camera, as proposed here is unsupported by any theory or, for that matter, observational evidence. Over the next few days I'll try to rewrite the section, supposing such a section is needed. I suspect the source for this, had it been cited, is the 'Cambridge in Colour' web site, which expounds this theory. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Bobn2 (talk • contribs) 06:10, 11 July 2014 (UTC)
Edited this section, in the end, I couldn't keep any of the previous version. In fact, I'm not convinced this section is needed at all, but the new version is, I believe, right and does cite it sources.Bobn2 (talk) 16:24, 11 July 2014 (UTC)
