Portrait lenses never experience any distortion problems. The Sigma A 60 mm f/2.8 DN is not an exception here. In the case of the JPEG files that aberration amounts to 0.42% and in the case of RAW files, which include a bit wider angle of view, 0.44%. Both these values are slight.

It is also worth mentioning that the rival Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 60 mm f/2.8 ED Macro performed even a bit better, showing practically a zero level of distortion (with the official result of 0.01%).
