What (if any) in-camera JPEG corrections does the E-M5 apply to the Panasonic 14 and 20 lenses?

    Hi guys,

    I've searched, but without much luck...I'm about to buy my first non-Olympus lenses (except for my Samyang fishie) for my E-M5: A Panasonic 14mm and a Panasonic 20mm II.

    I seem to remember that Olympus bodies DO NOT correct for vignetting or CA on these lenses, but they (specifically the E-M5) *DO* correct for distortion. Am I correct?

    Thank you,
    T

    Yes, that's pretty much the how it goes. Distortion is corrected on any body with any lens. Vignetting is not corrected on any Olympus body with any lens. CA is corrected on the E-M1 and E-M10, seemingly with any lens, but not on any older Olympus bodies.

    Perfect, thank you. I'm most concerned about distortion, anyways.
