Get the 18mm or wait for the 27mm?

Re: Get the 18mm or wait for the 27mm?

The 18mm suffers from a lot of optical distortion which is corrected in camera firmware this is what gives the corners their softness. The 18-55mm less so.

Yes, fine for street photography perhaps, but not a great choice as an all round lens, even stopped down it isn't good in the corners for landscapes, though I know that wasn't the question asked.

Could have quite a wait for the 23mm I believe. A cynic would say Fuji don't want to cannibalise their X100 sales.
