plevyadophy - what do you mean by distortion at 12mm on m43?

It's not distortion at 12mm on mFT per se, rather it's 12mm distortion (no matter what format). At that extreme focal length barrel distortion is common (mFT hides it by automatically doing distortion correction, at the risk of some image quality loss in the corners, on JPEG output). To get rid of it optically, means a more expensive and complex lens.

This is wrong. You can deduce that this is wrong through the use of reductio ad absurdem. If it were the case, then compacts and phones with tiny lenses would have insane distortion. They don't.
