Oly 9-18 on Pana Gs question

I am about to invest in a G3 and lenses. Light weight is my reason for going from DSLR to m4/3, as I do a lot of backpacking--and I'm just getting old. I do a lot of landscape shooting so want a wide angle zoom--I currently have the beautiful Canon 10-22.

Now my question: At half the weight(and lower cost) of the Pana wide-angle zoom, the Oly 9-18 looks like the lens for me. But in the DPR review, the lens has significant distortion. It is corrected in the software on the Olys but does software correct the distortion on a Pana, like the G3? Or in post processing with Photoshop? Thanks.
