Re: What is mFT FoV?

If one has, say, a 12mm lens on an mFT camera, it presumably implies some FoV. However, these days a large number of mFT lenses do software correction for lens distortions, and the image as rendered in, say, ACR is significantly different from the uncorrected version of the same image.

My question: is the 12mm FoV relevant to the FoV of the original image or the FoV of the corrected image, which is, typically, significantly smaller than that of the original?

"is the 12mm FoV relevant to: the FoV of the original image

or

the FoV of the corrected image, which is, typically, significantly smaller than that of the original?"

What do you call "original" and "corrected"?

Why do you think that corrected image is SIGNIFICANTLY SMALLER than original?
