    D5000 "auto distortion control": how effective is it?

    I am currently using a Tamron 18-270 lens with my Nikon D5000 and am frustrated with the marked barrel distortion it has (which I realize is a trade-off with any zoom lens of this sort).

    In the shooting menu, there's a setting for "auto distortion control" which is greyed out (probably because the feature only works with Nikkor lenses). I have tried it with a 105mm Nikkor macro lens that I also have, but cant really notice any difference with that lens.

    Can anyone comment on how effective this feature is with removing lens distortion on the popular Nikkor 18-200 lens? Would love to see a "with and without" comparison...

    The 105 virtually doesn't have any distortion, so there's nothing to correct. Some user feedback here on the distortion control:

    Thanks. I'm aware about the 105 not having a distortion problem. Was curious about how it works with the 18-200 Nikon Lens. Will check out the link. Thanks!
