Distortion for Panasonic Lumix S PRO 50mm f/1.4

The Panasonic Lumix S PRO 50mm f/1.4 relies on software distortion correction for its pronounced optical distortion.

This page shows distortion with and without distortion correction, and also shows much sharpness is lost to distortion correction, both for single shot mode and Multi-Shot High-Res mode. Includes crops from 93-megapixel and 47 megapixel images.
