6. Distortion

Portrait lenses rarely have any distortion problems and the Leica 1.2/42.5, tested here, is not an exception to that rule. Its distortion level remains negligibly low, no matter whether you work with JPEG or RAW files. For the former file format we got -0.09% and -0.05% for the latter. Both results, within the margin of error, are the same so you can say the distortion of the tested lens amounts to zero.
