6. Distortion

This class zoom lenses usually don’t have any problems with distortion but in the case of the Olympus the situation is not so obvious. Smaller sensor forces the usage of short focal lengths. Here the instrument, which focal lengths range starts from 35 mm, is used as a zoom. After all 35 mm is considered wide angle on full frame. How will it influence the deformation correction at the frame edge? Let’s find out!

The shortest focal length, which made us worry so much, fares very well here. We noticed just a slight −0.28% pincushion distortion. Such a value is practically unnoticeable in normal shots.

At longer focal lengths the situation is worse but just a little bit. In the middle of the range the distortion reaches 0.40% and it increases to 0.56%. at the maximum focal length. None of these values is bothersome so the lens fares very well in this category.
