Re: How is the 16-50 kit lens with NEX-5(N) and NEX-7 ?

This brings up something I suppose I had better ask about.  I just bought an F3, moving from a Canon S95.  I had decided on NEX for a variety of reasons, and the F3 was on sale locally at a good price. The S95 corrects lens distortion in RAW files when you open them in Canon's DPP software. I suppose it does it in camera for the Jpegs.

My F3 came with the 18-55 kit lens.  What do I need to know about lens distortion? I'm sure that I'll end up shooting RAW as I did with the Canon, but I'll be shooting Jpegs too to take advantage of some of the features of the camera.  How good is the supplied software for RAW files?

I am reading my way through the back postings to this forum, so if these questions have been answered many times, I'm sure I'll find it.
