G1XMKII Lens correction
Jul 23, 2014

This has been touched on before so if you've seen this already, skip to the next thread. I was trying to see if the G1XMKII has a sweet spot, like a focal lenght at which almost no distrotion occurs so software lens correction is kept to a minimum. Below are images coverted to DNG and then opend with ACR in PS. There is no lens profile so the full distortion is present. Amazingly, the only focal lenght without distortion is 120mm. At 24mm, it is extrem. So I thought, if I use like 35mm, that may be sharper than 24mm? But that is not the case, if you look at the corners of the last three images (24/28/35) converted in DPP. It shows how important the right software is for converting images from this camera. Hope this is useful or interesting for some of you.
