For this reason, a Contax gradation filter 4x is

Performance data:
Hologon T* 8/16
Cat. No. 10 49 27
1. MTF Diagrams
The image height u - calculated from the
image center - is entered in mm on the
horizontal axis of the graph. The
modulation transfer T (MTF = M
odulation Transfer Factor) is entered on
the vertical axis. Parameters of the
graph are the spatial frequencies R in
cycles (line pairs) per mm given at the
top of this page.
The lowest spatial frequency
corresponds to the upper pair of curves,
the highest spatial frequency to the lower
pair. Above each graph, the f-number k
is given for which the measurement was
made. "White" light means that the
measurement was made with a subject
illumination having the approximate
spectral distribution of daylight.
Unless otherwise indicated, the
performance data refer to large object
distances, for which normal
photographic lenses are primarily used.
2. Relative illuminance
In this diagram the horizontal axis gives
the image height u in mm and the
vertical axis the relative illuminance E,
both for full aperture and a moderately
stopped-down lens. The values for E are
determined taking into account
vignetting and natural light decrease.
3. Distortion
Here again the image height u is entered
on the horizontal axis in mm. The
vertical axis gives the distortion V in %
of the relevant image height. A positive
value for V means that the actual image
point is further from the image center
than with perfectly distortion-free
imaging (pincushion distortion); a
negative V indicates barrel distortion.
