I can't understand the hang up some folks have with software corrections for distortion in lenses which were, after all,  designed in the first place to need software correction. It is sort of like saying that the Stealth Bomber or Typhoon fighter are poor designs because they would be unflyable without heavy doses of computer assisted software. I'll gladly live with a compact, lightweight, wide range zoom that needs software corrections instead of having one that weighs a ton and costs a small fortune.
