A non issue for me

I don't see any noticeable loss of IQ due to correction, and the preview in EVF seems to show already corrected image. I honestly don't understand the OP issue - if he's using SOOC JPEGs they are already corrected, and if Raw then it's applied automatically on import.

My biggest gripes with this lens:

1. It's not f2.8

2. It's not half the size

3. The AF can be unpredictable sometimes on closely located moving objects.

4. At widest end it's same as 19mm Sigma and narrower than 18-55 kit

5. It blocks the built in flash unless you take off the hood and zoom to past 40mm

Only 3,4 and 5 are real deficiencies, and none of them is a major one. So far this lens by far exceeds my expectations as a kit lens replacement for use outdoors.
