I have not heard of anyone correcting optical aberrations such as chromatic
aberration, astigmatism, curvature of field. I would think the digital
information needed to make corrections well exceeds the capture ability of
todays ~13 megapixel sensors.

Certainly barrel and pincushion and vignetting, these are already done in
