I wonder how the Optical Distortion Correction works...Fuji claims by applying optical distortion correction the image quality would remain intact as opposed to when software corrected. It would be a milestone in wide angle lens design if they manage to correct distortion optically.

Check out the Nikon 14-24 F2,8 zoom.

Best wide angle lens ever made. Fujifilm will at best match this lens and that is a long shot.

I used Nikon 14-24 f2.8 and own Nikon 24-70 f2.8 and I can tell you that the amount of distortion you get from these lenses especially at their wider end is simply demoralizing!! They have good contrast,color rendition, AF Speed, as well as sharpness but what puts me off is the amount of distortion!!

You have a defective 14-24 then. A shame.
