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.

Good news for GB though, because his DP3M becomes no different than anyone else's.

Just interested in the technology.
