I SO want one of those (actually the 35-100mm more!).

I don't know of any Panasonic/Oly M4/3 lens that doesn't employ software correction to some degree. It's part of the compromise of keeping the size and weight down. The question is how much correction becomes too much correction.

Even a very high quality constant aperture fast zoom will have some distortion that varies with FL & Aperture and software correction is a benefit. It's when the correction gets used excessively as a crutch to mask lower quality that it becomes a problem (areas of lost detail and sharpness).
