As you see the level is evened out – all lenses, listed here, get slight barrel distortion on full frame, ranging from −2% to −1%. Two lens stick out in a positive way: the Nikkor AF-S 28 mm f/1.8G ED and the Otus 1.4/28. The first one has the lowest result on full frame and the other one – on the smaller detector.
