EDIT: The distortion I see has nothing to do with perspective. It is in the curved lines.
The 23mm f/2 Fuji WR lens is fully corrected optically, not by the software. At least according to both LensTip.com and Opticallimits.com in their measurements of the lens. The distortion in the two photos posted here is totally due to the tilting of the camera, not any distortion in the lens used.
