6. Distortion

The distortion level of the tested lens, despite being low, can be hardly called zero, like in the case of the PanaLeica. In JPEG files we detected small barrel distortion, amounting to −1.25%. Due to a minimal increase of the field of view in the case of RAW files, that value increases to −1.44%. It is not a bothersome level but the Leica showed that, with this focal length, a perfect correction of that aberration shouldn’t be a problem.
