Carl Zeiss Otus 55 mm f/1.4 ZE/ZF.2

18 November 2013

6. Distortion

The chart below shows the distortion results reached by the tested lens and its direct rivals. It is clear that the Otus fared the best here, with just one serious competitor in the form of another Zeiss, the Macro Planar. The Voigtlander had very good results in this category as well but the system1.4/50 devices produced by Canon and Nikon are definitely the worst.
