certainly is not usable for Astro-Photography (or landscape or architecture for that matter). So in my opinion it isn't at all important if it's usable at infinity. I is an interesting choice for portraits or macro-ish (flowers etc.) subjects.

Agree. It's more suitable for "impressionistic" pictures. Despite being only 50mm, wide open, the RO109 can nicely isolate a subject even at a few m distance.

Myself, I wouldnt bother too much with correcting distortion etc. If major distortion is unwanted, there's plenty of other lenses that are much more suitable On the other hand, the distortion can help further isolating a subject (when it's positioned more or less in the center of the image)
