es, why don't you try it ? Google is your friend, there are plenty of programs who make a linear perspective out of a circular one. And they don't cost more than a few bucks.

you miss the point - I said that digital correction of the extreme order that, say the brain does with the image provided by the eye, is not very good - AT the moment.

The slight software correction required by the 9-18mm lens provides images that are, for all intents and purposes indistinguishable from optically corrected lenses. Of course, you may be in the business of shooting lens charts and looking at boring lines at 200-300% magnification where you will see a difference - if you look for a difference (and I'm sure a randomized test would leave you - all of us - guessing).

Nobody will look at a photo on a gallery wall; in a magazine or even the family photo album and think, "hmm that looks like it was taken with a software corrected lens"; and the reason nobody will do that is because nobody can tell the difference.

In the future, not too far off, all lens will require software correction on the images they produce. And the software correction will be doing things that are nigh-on impossible optically.
