Yes, it's easy to find by following the links at Olympus actually:

Fortunately, it's not that magic. Look at the cross section drawings.
The back element is wider and closer to the sensor and the rays are
more parallel at the exit of the lens. This should indeed prevent
light falloff on the corner of the sensor and the necessary analog
correction for this effect.


The problem is similar to the reason of the light fall off in the corners
of large LCD screens. With 18" screen for example, the angle between your
eyes and the corners may be already as much as 15-18 deg.
