Hi there,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have a question about photography. We know that in geometric optics, a bunch of parallel rays which going into the len will focus on the focus (a point). But as we see, the image is a set of points on a 2 dimensional plane. It is quite confusing that a focus is only a point instead of a plane. How can the len to catch the image of all points of the object?
