Although the distortion of the Samyang 1.4/24 is not high, because on a small and big sensor it amounts to –1.27% and –2.48% respectively, the tested lens fares here worse than its competitors. Compared to the 1.4/35 model, which could correct the distortion better than expensive lenses produced by Canon and Nikon, the change is not nice.
