Tokina AT-X PRO FX SD 70-200 f/4 VCM-S

6. Distortion

When you join the tested Tokina and the APS-C/DX sensor the distortion won’t be bothersome at all. At the beginning, in the middle and at the end of the focal range it amounts to, respectively −0.47%, +0.49% and +0.77%, never exceeding the 1.0 value.

A bit worse results, which is quite understandable, you see on full frame – we got respectively −0.61%, +1.27% and +1.73%. The distortion is clearly visible, especially at the longer focal lengths, but its level is not especially high. It is worth noticing that the Tokina fares here better than the more expensive Nikkor 70-200 f/4.0 VR.
