The SL camera's 'live view' will show converging and diverging verticals … i.e. as the camera is tilted 'up' the verticals will converge - and as it's tilted 'down' the verticals will be seen to diverge. If contemplating correction of e.g. converging / diverging verticals in e.g. Photoshop Elements there are Youtube tutorials which demonstrate perspective correction
The SL and the CL both have very accurate level displays. The level line turns green within about 1 degree away from level, and the little pitch indication appears and disappears to tell you if you are pointing up or down with about the same precision (it's the tiny red line in the middle of the viewfinder, about the width of the gap in the level line). The other distortion, from not shooting at 90 degrees to the house face or wall or whatever you want to keep square is harder to control, but the grids help to see that. And Capture One has an easy to use postprocessing control that eliminates either vertical diverging lines or horizontal diverging lines. I just place two lines to identify the divergence, click to remove it, then crop to place edges where they look best. Photoshop/LR should be about the same.

Beautiful - many shades of green, the mountains and the sea - and clouds below you. Very nice.
