6. Distortion

With such a focal length we didn’t expect any distortion problems. Still we had to make sure the reality reflected our expectations. What’s more, we had to test both JPEG and RAW files because the first format files are often automatically corrected by the Micro 4/3 system.

We found out the distortion level is practically zero, no matter what file format you use. The official results are as follows: +0.21% for JPEG files and +0.17% for RAW files. Both of these are practically the same and in accordance with each other within the margin of error.

After attaching the lens to the teleconverter the distortion changed its sign but its level remains very low. In the case of JPEG files our result was −0.41%, and −0.40% in the case of RAW files. As you see, for these two file formats both values are again practically the same.
