Optics Against Computational Photography

Rumors of 2019 iPhone models are already starting to flow. The optics of the newest iPhone, the high end model, could received a third lense. Some people don’t like it and refer to the Google Pixel 3 having only one lense to do the job. This is an error.

Looking at some sketches and approximation of what this could look like physically, I think I prefer Apple to invest in real optics, not only in computational photography. Nothing will come close to beat glass lenses and light entry captured on a CCD. As a serious amateur photographer using real lenses, I can attest that.
