Thanks to all for correcting my statement. It appears the 100% club is
larger than memory served me. It is still the top of the line products,
principally, but not as exclusive as I stated, for sure.
For sake of interest, Popular Photo rated their F3 test camera at 98.8%
horizontally by 99.2% vertically. I guess that's about as close to 100%
as one can expect.
