Distortion is another category in which our tested lens achieves better results than the competition and is closer to the Canon 70-200 f/4L (which achieves good results easily since having a smaller range of focal lengths). The chart below will serve its purpose and no words are needed here. Let me just add that in this lens class, geometric distortions are never a huge problem.
