6. Distortion

Geometric deformations on the edge of the frame are not a problem for the equipment of this class. It’s enough to say that the distortion for all 70-200 mm zooms, tested by us so far, hasn’t exceed 0.9% at any focal length. The result of the Nikkor 70-200 VR and the summary of its competitors’ results in this category are shown in the chart below.
