I think I'm leaning towards the Panasonic 7-14, but I have a question - I know distortion would be severe at 7mm, but would distortion be worse at 12mm compared to the other 2 lenses? Or is distortion at 12mm equivalent across all three lenses?

Suggestions/experiences/recommendations much appreciated. Thank you!

http://www.photozone.de can answer that question with tests & data.

From a purely optical standpoint they're probably all pretty bad with distortion. Micro four thirds lenses in general are designed with software correction in mind.

I have the 12/2 and know it has plenty of native distortion. In every other aspect it is pretty good, in my opinion.
