I had very little distance to go backwards in a karate dojo for a group of about 40 people. I therefore used a 10mm lens, but the result is obviously lots of distortion on all faces close to the edges.

Is there any easy-to-use freeware allowing me to re-establish the correct perspective ?

Yes, there are several software packages to do that IF the problem is lens distortion. I would recommend one of those based on Panorama Tools. Hugin is free, and PTGui, PTAssembler, and PTMac are shareware with timed trial periods.

There is a "distortion" that is best known as the "big nose" effect that cannot be adjusted out.

The "big nose" effect does not only apply to people.
