It seems to have to do with sensor construction, hat is different from film because light has to enter the sensor more or less straight for the best results (ligth gets reflected of the sensor or it doesn't hit the pixel well.) The short flange distance makes the angles of entry quite shallow. Using an adapter or lenses that come out more (i have a sigma 19 mm that is quite bulky) should solve the problem. I have no complaints about the sigma 19 mm in image quality, probably because it doesnt have the short flange distance of the pankcake. Still waiting the adapter to use manual focus nikon lenses. With an adapter the flange distance is also higher and the angle of entry problem is the same as for any regular nikon dslr.

Thanks, finally someone who understands what I was talking about. I was not aware of Sigma not going along with the super short flange back distance. nice to know.
