For such wide angles of view the geometric deformations are not huge. What’s interesting we deal here with the barrel distortion throughout the whole focal range. At 11 mm it reaches –2.66%, at 16 mm it decreases to –0.72% and by 22 mm it stops at –0.26%.

It’s the first category in which the ZD 11-22 mm fares significantly better than the ZD 12-60 mm which, at the widest angle, had the distortion level at – 3.54 %.
