The Zeiss has a bit narrower angle of view than the 24 mm constructions so the distortion correction is a tad easier. What’s interesting it has a smaller discrepancy than its competitors between the performance on a small and big sensor. On the APS-C sensor we observe slight barrel distortion of –1.11% which increases to –1.96% on full frame. The Zeiss is worse than the Nikkor but it fares similarly to the Canon and noticeably better than the Samyang.
