I had heard that the 40mm lens suffered badly from distortion (either barrel, or pincushion - I'm not sure).

The digital shooters aren't bothered much, because the lens "pattern" is included in the photo-editing software and is therefore "automatically" corrected.

I would be very happy to hear that this is wrong.
