The result is CORNERS OUT OF FOCUS, not "soft corners."

If you use the same settings to take a picture of a subject, and the camera produces a blurry bokeh around it, then you are practicing " photography ."

Whining about soft corners with these settings is simply nonsense.

Why don't you try to do the same test with your own eyes: See how well you can focus on something out in your peripheral vision, while you stare at something an inch in front of your eyes. Your eyes can't do it, either.

Are you denying the reputable results by Imaging Resource?

Most of these compacts, in general, suffer from corner softness wide open, generally at both the wide end and long end. Some are better(XZ-1) and some are worse(S100). The samples on this forum and others that I have seen are in some cases noticable at 50 percent. For many photographers, this isn't a huge deal. Most people don't shoot landscapes wide open.
