Abstract

Two typing errors in our manuscript are reported and corrected.

© 2012 OSA

There are two typing errors in our paper [1

]. First, the Sparrow resolution criterion we stated in our paper is the Sparrow criterion for points in the coherent case. The Sparrow criterion for lines in the coherent case, which applies in our case, is given by [2

ΔxS=0.6626λNAsub.

The results for ΔxS given in our paper, have been computed with the correct equation for lines.

Second, on the right-hand side of Eq. (8), the factor 2z has been accidently written twice. The correct equation is as follows:
Δxgeom=MffDsub=2zDpictureDffNAsub.

The authors regret the errors, which do not affect any of the results or conclusions presented in [1
