Are you using a magnifying lens on the front of your DP3M?

Maybe the image would be more evenly focused with one of these on the front? Just a thought.

I think those Hoya lenses are single-element, so they will not give critically sharp images. There is likely to be chromatic aberration.

Sorry I could not find the spec for filter thread for the DP3M, not even on Sigma USA. But, you could buy an adapter ring to use the above 58mm lens set. There are quite a few similar lens sets available at B&H.

It's 52mm.

I used to have a DP3M but never used it for macro.
