Re: Dp3 Merrill Macro Focus Issues: Am I a dingus?

I would assume that the lens on the DP3M is a curved field lens, suitable for general photography.

For edge to edge sharpness shooting flat surfaces you need to use a flat field lens.  Apparently most true macro lenses are flat field which makes them suitable for shooting documents and art.  I don't own a macro lens so I don't have any personal experience with this.
