I am an archaeologist and photographer and i want to compare very expensive to buy photograph lenses which used by famous American and British photographers .There are photograph print books of these photographers but comparing is very difficult because they expose the film with thinking print process and with color filters and dodging while printing and using many different chemicals and timings. I know some leitz lenses , cooke , goerz , zeiss , rodenstock and others have characteristics which invented by their users in time but it is a need to compare them scientifically. There is lensview software documents 30000 different lenses with their curves and glasses and zemax lens design software which works with matlab and creates lens analyses. But they are very expensive softwares and we want free way to do this with programs like kdp2 and codes work on free softwares or scientific papers which help to write the code. They say we need to work on point spread function or optical transfer function. There are many astronomy softwares or programs which changes the psf. But If I am not wrong we have to change psf for each pixel color and position.
