Thanks Eric, I'll be using it on a NX1000, which I believe also has the auto-correction for w/a

ALso do you know where I can find side by side samples of uncorrected and corrected images?

On the NX1000 you will be only able to shoot corrected images, unless you shoot RAW and use a RAW processing tool that will let you pull out the unprocessed image, like dcraw or a dcraw based converter, or something else that doesn't automatically fix the image for you.  Lightroom will automatically correct your images with that camera I believe.

I don't think I have time this week, but could maybe shoot a 16mm image next to an uncorrected 18-55mm to see the difference.

I guess I like more difference between a 16mm and an 18-55 or 20-50mm (even if as specified). I use the 16mm with the 30mm pancake.  With 18-55 or 20-50mm I would probably rather match something like the excellent new 12-24mm.
