6. Distortion

It would be difficult to expect a 300 mm ‘prime’ to have any serious distortion-related problems. Accordingly the geometric deformations of the image won’t bother you almost at all. On a smaller sensor of the Nikon D7000 we detected a negligible pincushion distortion amounting to +0.39%. That aberration increases to +0.79% after passing to full frame. Both results can be classified as slight, almost completely imperceptible in real life photos.
