All m4/3 lenses have huge distortion in RAW.
Many, but not all. The nice Olympus 45mm/1.8, for instance (a lens which IMHO gives tremendous "bang for the buck") is one of the exceptions: Olympus M.ZUIKO DIGITAL 45mm f/1.8 - Review / Lens Test - Analysis

It's not pancake. But even 45 mm has pincushion distortion 1.02%

That's not exactly "huge", but of course it's worse than e.g. the DA70 (which I guess is the closest Pentax lens, it's equivalent to a 53mm/1.8 on m4/3) at 0.5%.

Now you know why Olympus engineers try their best to deliver perfect in camera JPEGs.
Which is then praised by everyone, of course, despite sub-optimal lens quality.
By that remark, Pentax lenses should cost twice as much as they are optically of higher quality.

Geometric distortion isn't the only parameter that defines optical quality…

By the way, here's another contender for the "between Leica and Nikon" niche, Fuji's response to the OM-D E-M1:



34,5mm f1,4…

35mm FOV in FF, something that unfortunately I cannot buy for my Pentax DSLRs…

okay, that's true Whish they'd develop a comparable lens. In general Fuji is developing a pretty interesting lineup (14mm, 23mm, 56mm, the two F2.8 Zooms).

Samyang does make a 24mm f/1.4 which is available for Pentax. That's close isn't it?

Well, i've heard that the aperture is optimistically adjusted.... it is really a pity that the lens list on camerasize.com is rather limited for comparison pursoses.

Fuji's last joke :
- ridiculously unergonomic,
- one WR lens to be available,
- K-3 price....

Possibly, I have yet to hold one…but the back dials and buttons position is similar to that of my K-5.

I would rather have a set of lenses with the right FOV than WR in a set of lenses that are of no use to me.

But then I don't have any emotional feelings about my camera, my lenses or their manufacturer/brand name.
They're tools for a certain task, just as a pencil or a screwdriver…

Sorry, but did you figure out how you would use all these Fuji wheels and buttons ?
Blocked control wheels for sensitivity and speed ?
Video shooting, unless having delicate piano-fingers ?
Impossible to reach exposure matrix control lever?

=> Spending more time to look and search and manipulate, than to shoot through the EVF, doesn't appear to be of any photographical efficiency... but that's mho.
