The Fujifilm company is not especially consistent when it comes to the distortion correction. In some lenses they correct it as it should be done and in some that aberration is left to be dealt with by the camera’s software.

In the case of a telephoto lens with an angle of view amounting to 20 degrees the distortion correction is easy and we would be surprised if the producers didn’t do it properly. Our measurements taken in JPEG and RAW files show that you deal here with a low level of pincushion distortion which values are respectively +0.46% and +0.48%. These results are, within the margin of error, the same; it indicates that the distortion is corrected very efficiently by the optics itself and doesn’t need any support from the camera’s software.
