Re: In-camera distortion correction
In reply to Michael Barker, Jul 6, 2012

There should be RAW connverters (at least RPP for Mac) that do not do any corrections, and the 16mm lens, indeed, produces very good results when uncorrected. Distortion is not much bigger as in any of wide angle mFT/APS-C lens.

I find the uncorrected photos to look more natural and three-dimensional, due to slightly visible distortion, perhaps. The corrected ones are often too flat, what may be good for architecture shots but not for other cases.

By the way, the good small 20-50mm lens has a very strong distortion at 20mm, that does need to be corrected in most cases.
