LX3 True 24mm?
Nov 10, 2012

I just got a LX3 for a couple month. While doing some HDRs I noticed Photomatix's RAW conversion gave a wider angle of view than Adobe ACR's. It appears ACR has distortion correction that can't be disabled. Take this image for example, I'm sure I framed it when only the old man was in the shot, yet in Photomatix's conversion there's an arm. So this would mean the LCD live-view accounts for the distortion too (?)

So I'm curious, is the "24mm" on LX3 24mm AFTER the distortion correction or before?
