Camera manufacturers typically advertise their products by citing the resolution of their camera’ lenses, the resolution of a lens being the degree of detail the lens is capable of reproducing in the image it projects onto the film. Differences between cameras in this respect are irrelevant for practical photography, however, since all modern lenses are so excellent that they project far more detail onto the film than any photographic film is capable of reproducing in a developed image.
15. Which one of the following most accurately states the main point of the argument?
(A) Camera manufacturers ought to concentrate on building other desirable qualities into their cameras’ lenses, rather than concentrating only on the lenses’ resolution.
(B) Apart from differences in resolution, there is no practical difference among modern cameras in the quality of the images that they produce.
(C) Advertised differences among cameras in the resolution of their lenses have no practical bearing on the cameras’ relative quality as photographic tools.
(D) In concentrating their advertising on the issue of image quality, manufacturers are making a mistake about the interests of potential purchasers of cameras.
(E) Differences among photographic films in the amount of detail they reproduce have a more significant effect on the quality of the developed image than do differences in the resolution of camera lenses.
