Often when I travel in India, I just carry the X100F, as in the cities the crowds can be crushing, and a big camera bag is a major hindrance. After a long time, I used the WCL-X100 adapter again, but dammit, the distortions are awful. The lens setting in the camera was correctly set to "Wide". I find the distortions unacceptable. I'd have worse examples than this, but I haven't bothered to PP those pics.

The photo was processed from RAW with C1, then brushed up a bit with Luminar 3.

Anyone else having a distortion problem with the adapter?

I spent 15 minutes at that road crossing, got some decent shots, but the distortion in the buildings ... I know I can correct it in PP, but then you lose part of the photo along the edges, so why use the adapter at all.

A bit dramatic, don't you think?

Well, that photo was still the best in the lot. Look at this one. The buildings look like they're shaken by an earthquake.

Good  grief.   Two suggestions:

1. Put down the WA adapter.   It's not for you.

2. Complain to the local city planner.

From the same session today.
