Default Life with an FZ20

David J Taylor decided to say......

Goes off muttering about why he needs a 24mm wide angle....


24mm on the wide side must be nice! How bad is the barrel distortion at
24? Do you need to do corrections much?

I haven't measured the distortion - yes there is a little barrel
distortion but it's far less than you see in many cameras reported in e.g.
dpreview.

As a very rough guide, it is perhaps a little less bad than:

so maybe around 1%. That's not an accurate measurement or anything,
though. Haven't had the camera long enough to know if images will need
correcting or not.
