How does the Sony FE mount model with an autofocus unit fare? Unfortunately its performance is the weakest. At the smaller APS-C sensor we got barrel distortion amounting to −1.04%, and its level increases on full frame to −2.01%. Both values are officially the highest in the given class but, within the margin of error, they are in accordance with the results of the Nikkor or the older Canon 1.4/35L.
