Panasonic lens, distortion on Olympus body

I know there have been a number of threads on pana lenses on Olympus bodies

My reading suggests that pana lens distortion should be (?well) corrected in recent Olympus cameras as the correction data are encoded in the image file- I am not sure how much correction to expect.

I recently tried a Panasonic 15mm 1.7 lens on my new OMD Em1 mark2 (only used the 12-100 Oly till now but looking for fast light prime)

I liked the image quality but found what appeared to be obvious levels of distortion.

Would welcome comments from others who have used pana lenses on Oly bodies - as to whether you are seeing this degree of distortion despite the correction

? problem with the lens

? am I perhaps mistaking geometric distortion for lens distortion


below are two examples - see the top right building distortion in first images and leaning lenses bottom left corner of second image

see distortion in building top right of images

see distortion lower left -sloping camera lenses
