I don't mind the software correction at all. It's actually a wise way to optimize a design at this point. BUT...

For Leica to bake the corrections into the RAW file, and make marketing claims that the distortion correction is optical - to sell very, VERY expensive crop lenses to its dedicated customers is condescending and dishonest.

Really, shame on them for the second part. What other claims do we have to question now as well?

You're right!

DPReview confirms this here.

Perhaps Leica could enlighten us, before consumers boycott.
