Leica D Summilux 25 mm f/1.4

6. Distortion

The price, that the Four Thirds system pays for the small detectors, is the need to use shorter focal lengths and this entails in turn more geometric distortion on the frame edge. In the case of the tested Leica the manufacturers handled that aberration pretty well, because the distortion level, barrel, measured by us, amounted to -0.97%. The value in itself is not perhaps very low but it will be almost imperceptible on real life photos.
