Re: Sony 16-50 kit lens

My problem is not that the lens uses software correction in-camera to achieve its design goals, but that there doesn't seem to be an equivalent tool to allow that correction to take place outside of the camera after shooting RAW. DXOPro doesn't support any of the modern NEX lenses and there doesn't appear to be anything from Sony. So how do we shoot RAW and then correct for the lens design in post-processing, given that the in-camera algorithms will be very finely matched to the lens optics and way better than anything we could manage by eye in post?

It's most widely apparent in the 16-50, which is unusable without correction, but the 18-200 and the 10-18 also seem to use software optical correction.
