Don't feel bad... I too had to learn a whole new slang of abbreviations and acronyms when I went on line.
IMHO is short for In My Humble Opinion. Used to denote that the statement made is based on the writer's own ideas or assumptions. The shorter word, IMO simply leaves out the word humble.
MTF is an actual photographic term meaning Modulation Transfer Function. It is a test criteria the measures in a quantifiable way the sharpness and contrast function of a lens. It is almost universally accepted, but many feel it does not measure the intangible things that a lens does that effect the overall image. In other words, numbers are not everything. Some of the great lenses from the history of 35mm photography do poorly when subjected to a MTF test, and some that do well are not highly regarded in the real world... IMHO

IMHO you are absolutely correct in regard to MTF, as in so many other things.
