Ironically, despite your remarks, it just happens to be an option Olympus has exercised with the 12mm F2, which has a rather high level of native barrel distortion.

The good news: the 12mm f2 review is in progress

The bad news: The optical quality of this lens might not be excellent before software correction.

Not really. Sharp is sharp. They do not correct in software for sharpness (just waiting for the expected nebulous answer from one or two "experts" on this one). If the lens is sharp and it turns out software is needed to correct for distortions, well....this is the micro four thirds system, isn't it?

The option is always there for someone to move on if correcting in software for distortion is more than they can stand.
