LX7 awful edge resolution due to distortion correction

Just 'upgraded' from an LX5 to an LX7 and noticed very poor edge resolution at wide settings using RAW developed in ACR - worse than the LX5. When processing them in Capture one where you can turn off the distortion correction you can see why - the native lens distortion is absolutely horrendous and at the wide end it looks like a fisheye lens. All that loss of resolution is solely from the distortion correction stretching the edges of the image back into shape and looking at the undistorted image the resolution is superb right into the corners. For me this camera is a FAIL for this reason alone - will soldier on with the LX5......
