I have a friend who is a professional water colour artist ...alway used photography ..never mentions distortion to me and I would have thought artistic license would allow you to adjust it anyway, I should imagine that most artists use cameras these days and they probably use cheap cameras,

Yes, most artists are not aware of the distortion issue, yet. My teacher uses a 10 year old digital. What you said is prevalent amongst artists, but that does not mean it is a non-issue. More and more artists will awaken to this in the coming years.

Also, if you use a camera to take pictures for your paintings, then distortion is not an issue, because it's not the art.
