  1. Here is a link to the information that I found interesting: Linky-Linky

    In a nutshell, this is what I gleaned from the article:

    Our eyes are equivalent to 324 mega pixels, an ISO rating of 1-800, 10,000:1 dynamic range, a 22mm focal length, and an aperture of f/3.5.

    There are various other specs from other authors. There may be different interpretations of what I read on this page. I am not stating anything absolute. I was just curious and decided to do some research. This page seemed to make the most sense out of the ones I read.

    Aperture of 3.5? Isn't it variable? Since our pupils dilate and constrict depending on ambient light?

    This is confusing to me but one thing that i do notice is that at about 70mm focal length through a lens on my D70, my left eye and my right eye seem to match perspective and size (although my field of view is greater on my left, or open, eye).

    Meaning that i can open both eyes and stare at an object both through the lens, and with no obstruction and it matches up.
