I was thinking the same thing - download DXO and have a crack at it.

DXO is very very good at correcting those kind of distortions, if you're only problem with the lens is barrel & pincushion then DXO is a much cheaper option than that L or EX you've been eyeing.

But still... distortions at 55mm?

way too suspicious.... take a look at the distortion tests... almost nothing for 55mm.

Maybe Gaida could post the 55 mm shot for us to examine. Hey, I could be wrong, but my Photoshop test proves, at least to my satisfaction, that the distortion in this shot is equal on both sides. Another thing you can do, if you don't have photoshop, is just scroll the photo until the base of the center tower is resting on the bottom of your frame. You'll see that it is not level. Since water is always level, this proves that the photo is not level.
