No, I certainly do not expect it to compete with a lens. If I wanted an image like that, I would use a regular camera and lens. The distance is 3 inches.

It may indeed be sharp. Likely I will just sacrifice a roll of film and see how it works. As expected it is really dark therefore I may not be seeing the image that well.
