Actually, I think the problem is that Kodak's original lenses curved the
opposite way the film did, exaggerating the out of focus edge effects. The
flat field lenses corrected this to a much improved image. Accidentally
showing a slide reversed often meant sharp corners, but writing that was
backwards, etc.
