What’s better: digital or optical distortion correction? (dpreview)

Dpreview tried to found an answer to the following question: Can software ever take the place of optical excellence?

They tested four cameras: Canon Powershot S90, Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3, Panasonic Lumix DMC-G1 and the $loc = $_SESSION['geoip'];

if ($loc == 'GB' OR $loc == 'UK')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Olympus E-PL1 if ($loc == 'ES')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Olympus E-PL1 if ($loc == 'IT')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Olympus E-PL1 if ($loc == 'AT')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Olympus E-PL1 if ($loc == 'DE')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Olympus E-PL1 if ($loc == 'BE')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Olympus E-PL1 if ($loc == 'AU')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Olympus E-PL1 if ($loc == 'FR' OR $loc == 'FX')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Olympus E-PL1 if ($loc == 'NL')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Olympus E-PL1 if ($loc == 'CA')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Olympus E-PL1 if ($loc == 'US')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Olympus E-PL1 if ($sel != '1')
{?>Olympus E-PL1.

And what did they discover? “Purely optically-corrected design have an edge over the Micro Four Thirds lens that combines both optical and digital correction.
Interesting!

New Olympus 9-18mm review on Letsgodigital

Letsgodigital just posted their latest $loc = $_SESSION['geoip'];

if ($loc == 'GB' OR $loc == 'UK')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Olympus 9-18mm if ($loc == 'JP')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Olympus 9-18mm if ($loc == 'IT')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Olympus 9-18mm if ($loc == 'DE')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Olympus 9-18mm if ($loc == 'PL')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Olympus 9-18mm if ($loc == 'FR' OR $loc == 'FX')
{ $sel = "1"; ?>Olympus 9-18mm if ($sel != '1')
{ ?>Olympus 9-18mm review. They confirm that CA (Chromatic Aberration) is high but sharpness is excellent.

In the meanwhile one owner noticed a “extreme softness on the right side” (dpreview forum). Hope this is a problem with that specific sample and not a general issue.

Luminous Landscapes tested the NEX-5 (and didn’t like it)

If you need to know why the NEX-5 can’t overshadow MicroFourThirds cameras read the preview on Luminous Landscape. They are very satisfied with the cameras image quality but: “Sony’s engineers and marketing people had a mandate when it came to the design of the NEX-5, and unfortunately the needs of the more advanced photographer were not part of that brief.”
