As you can notice none of contemporary, fast 85 mm lenses has any distortion problems. Officially the lowest result belongs to the tested Sigma but, within the margin of error, the values are the same as those of the Otus 1.4/85 which performed in this category equally well. Both lenses are joint winners here.
