It's the result that counts

So finally I ask – do you score/rate this lens based on the projected area of the lens or what both the lens designer and “you” the photographer actually exactly intended/composed for in the viewfinder or on liveview?

My philosophy is to evaluate the lens the way I'm going to use the lens. If I'm going to finesse the postproduction distortion corrections, I'll evaluate it that way. If I'm not going to evade them, I'll test is after the corrections are made.

What counts is the end result. You don't loose points for software correction, if it produces a superior end product.
