A method for obtaining the best image plane for holographic optical elements by the use of the concept of entropy is described. This method is applied to in-line holographic lenses with different values of spherical aberration. Numerical results show that for holograms with large aberrations the best image plane (obtained by the use of the concept of entropy) is different from the minimum-aberration-variance plane.
