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

This has been mentioned before, but a handy way to quickly find the focal plane is with the PS tool Filter | Stylize | find edges:

So I shot a bit of house siding with my DP3M, at a distance of about a foot:

The red circle is roughly where I focused, and you can clearly see the ring of best focus. (It looks like I wasn't exactly  parallel to the surface, since the ring is lighter at the bottom.)
