Re: Comparing the new 12-40 Pro with the 12-60 SWD on an E-M1

I took photos of my back lawn with buildings in it I noticed the distortion in it with the 12-40 lens but when I adjusted the raw file in Capture One & took the Distortion back to 0% from 100% then I got the wider detail (undistorted) back.

Adjusted in Capture One with 0% distortion (saturation reduced).
I fiddle with violins (when I'm not fiddling with a camera).
