Obviously there is great concern for the resolution of lenses, both camera and enlarger. Does anyone have any data on the resolution of print papers (in lines/mm)? I can't imagine that any FB or RC paper can resolve even 5 lines/mm and if it can you will need a magnifier to appreciate the result. I think I read somewhere that large format quality lenses resolve about 30 l/mm. Lenses for 35 mm cameras often are in the 100 - 150 l/mm range. Current conventional film emulsions are limited to a range of 70 - 125 l/mm.

I am curious about how many l/mm the naked eye can perceive in a print. Can you tell that I am bored on a rainy Saturday morning?
