Learning many of the concerns, issues, etc for lenses from this site but occasionally am baffled by all the detail. (especially one that even lost NHL.)

What is a good primer, overview etc for learning all the issues and concerns with lenses? If it is covered with a good overview for digital photography all the better.

Thanks.

Okay, beggars can't be choosers. Countless posts tell new users to "get a book" or to "read up on xxx."

A simple request for some of your favorite books. 20+ views and zero responses.
eager to learn and begin providing productive feedback... anyone? Bueller?

I would second that list.

Norman Koren's site is excellent, not just his explanation of MTF. Spend a lot of time there reading.

Another one well worth visiting is Roger Clarke's site:
