6. Distortion

In the 70-300 mm class geometric deformations at the frame edges are rarely a serious problem. The Nikkor is not an exception to that rule and, in its case, the distortion measured at 70, 135, 200 and 300 mm amounts to -0.48%, 0.92%, 0.92% and 0.74% respectively. The chart below shows how the competitors fared in this category.
