It’s worth reminding here that the Canon 24L on full frame is a lens with a significant angle of view, reaching 84 degrees. Such degrees often cause distortion problems. With even greater joy we can announce that when it comes to the tested lens there are almost no problems at all. Our measurements showed just slight barrel distortion, which level was determined as –1.26%.

For quite understandable reasons, the results are even better on the APS-C sensor. The geometric deformations decrease to the level of –0.79% there.
