Nikon Nikkor AF-S 58 mm f/1.4G

6. Distortion

Classic 50 mm devices usually don’t have any big distortion problems. Taking into account the fact that the Nikkor AF-S 58 mm f/1.4G features a focal length by 8 mm longer than typical 1.4/50 models we expected it would correct the distortion in a perfect way. It wasn’t the case, though – the new Nikkor fares here worse than the Zeiss Otus and the Voigtlander with virtually the same parameters. All the results you can see in a chart, below.
