Also the edges of the lenses are blurred, so the edges of the rendered image aren't actually as visible to the user as they would on a flat screen.

What I've done a while back is create a 3D model of a room with a grid texture on the walls with a fixed camera inside and then change the desktop fov until it visually matched the image I could see in the Oculus. I believe I got somewhere between 60 and 65 vertical fov (with DK1).
You are right, and I just need to know the FOV parameters in the ballpark. For my experience, it seems that the DK2 has a 65 degree vertical and 90 degree horizontal of FOV.
