Yes, distortion correction is done.

Other negatives I know of:

There's no way to make an Olympus lens on a Panasonic body automatically focus to infinity like you would with the "lens reset" option on an Olympus body.

If I snap the manual focus ring on the 12/2 to manual, the camera says "Swtich to MF". I then half press the shutter and it is in manual focus. I wish it would just do it instead of pointlessly displaying that message. I would expect the 17/1.8 would do the same. Admittedly a very minor annoyance.

So how can I focus to infinity then?

By autofocusing on something at infinity. I meant the ability to have the lens just go to infinity without actually having to focus it on anything at all.
