Good to know. Somewhere I read that since the lens sits closer the the focal plane there was less distortion in equivelent lenses. Obviously someone was exaggerating - unintitionally making an overly ambiguous claim - about the benefits of a rangefinder. A quote from our favorite website to hate:

...For wide-angle lenses, allowing lens designers to make lenses whose rear elements can come very close to the image plane lets wide-angle rangefinder lenses be much smaller, sharper and have less distortion than SLR lenses...

I've read similar comments from other Leica & mirrorless users. This being the reason for my question. I knew I'd get the the "real" low-down here
