A comparison study for the methods of obtaining the MTF of optical systems was performed. It is demonstrated that non-Fourier methods are as good predictors of the MTF as are the Fourier methods. A new technique based on the moment theorem is introduced and is found to be a good predictor. A computer algorithm has been written to perform all the necessary operations.
