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.


Hey Jan,

That's a really interesting observation and one I had no idea existed! Most likely, that's the reason behind my focusing issues.

Now I just have to see if there's some kind of tool or filter to try and compensate for the curved lens.

Thanks for your help!
