    Re: why are my images blurry on the sides... some one explain this flat field thing

    Thinking of reading comprehension, I missed the import of something the OP posted. He seems to be using the long Nikkor teles (600/9, 800/12, and 1200/18) at f/22. Stopping the 1200 down two stops wants f/36, not f/22.

    36, not 32?

    18*2 = 36. The 1200/18 Nikkor tele's maximum aperture is f/18, not f/16.
