Optics Theory - This forum is aimed towards the TECHNICAL side of photographic OPTICS THEORY. There will be some overlap by camera/manufacturer, but this forum is for the heavy duty tech discussions. This is NOT the place to discuss a specific lens or lens line, do that in the appropriate forum. This is the forum to discuss optics or lenses in general, to learn about the tech behind the lenses and images. IF you have a question about a specific lens, post it in the forum about that type of camera, NOT HERE.

Pretty sure OP returned the camera and lens before they actually asked the question...

I don't see why you couldn't correct lens distortion of whatever level in LR.
This thread was resolved by the second post.

Unfortunately the conversation here derailed in a direction that wasn't predicted. Honestly, I expected more expertise opinions.
Thanks for the rff members that contributed with skilled advise in this matter.

Which you received, in s p a d e s, and ignored... (huh, apparently 'sp*des' is rude?)

The thread didn't derail, it was never on the rails to begin with

Dear nick,

My Nana used to say that those who can't see just have to feel. I wasn't sure what she meant by that when I was younger? This thread clearly demonstrated what she meant.

Regards,

I think my problem as a photographer was loving the image, and not trying to dissect it technically.

But....that said...I've always have taken into account perspectives and lens defects and used them to make an image I desire. If you can't live with the defect, send it back. One of my favorite images is shot with an Canon FD lens corrupted with fungus. It makes interesting and, when used with forethought, insightful images.

There's no need to invoke the technical aspects of optics until they are required to diagnose an issue and describe how to avoid, or minimize, the problem.
