Actually, I think they should go for 21-24 equiv (so a 14 or 16 lens), and keep it 2.8.  The trick would be getting it as sharp from corner to corner as the DP2M

Is that possible though.  What other ultra-wide angle lenses for any DSLR are that sharp edge to edge?

I think if it were possible for the DP-1M to be sharper edge to edge, it would be.

I assume it is theoretically possible, but we shouldn't forget costs, size, weight constraints at the end of the day, there is a point where lens manufacturers stop and consider a product "good enough" under these constraint, or they would have to change some of the parameters... probably price being the first
