6. Distortion

Dealing with a 150 mm macro lens you should hardly expect any distortion problems and we don’t encounter them here. Working on the APS-C sensor the lens shows imperceptible “pincushion” which value we determined as 0.06%. On a bigger detector we got the result of 0.08% which shouldn’t bother us either. In fact for both sensors, the distortion should be considered zero within the margin of error.
