Thats no surprise. All imx400 sensor from Sony has this lense issue. There won't be a fix. Sony already told there is no problem. Take your money back or accept it. Good luck

@aierI'd say yes, wide angle lens tend to curve lines that are near the edges of the field of view.

Re: xz1 compact camera distortion

Sony told in the XZP Thread that there is nothing wrong with the camera lens and its on pair with other manufactures picture quality.

 

You dont have to be Einstein to understand that they dont see this as a bug and therefore has nothing to be fixed.

 

please dont give false hope for people in here because most of them are on the edge with sony pictures quality problem.

 

Thank you

@aier that's simply how physics work when it comes to wide angle lens. for example: https://www.google.com/search?tbm=isch&q=wide+angle&tbs=imgo:1&gws_rd=cr&dcr=0&ei=sFjNWYn3NYeQ6QSYwp...

Do not be fooled! Sony employees say it's normal, it's a lie.
