Maybe this is more a philosophical question, but still I'm going to ask.
Searching for distortion free lenses for digital I was asking myself: Equals distortion correction via software a well corrected lens in quality terms?
What I mean is, with film correcting the lens was important, as later it couldn't be fixed easily. Today you can use software to ease the flaws of lens design (like Hasselblad is using it as a design approach).
So, is our search for the "best" lens (distortion free) only a reminiscence to the way we used to work? With digital pushing pixels is part of the proposition of the medium.
Thanks in advance for your thoughts
P.S.: I posted the same question on the Lula forum, but I'm sure there are different people visiting this forum, as I'm interested in a diversity of opinions.
