6. Distortion

On the small sensor of the Canon EOS 50D distortion shouldn’t be bothersome almost at all as its level never exceeds 1%. At 100, 200, 300 and 400 mm we got respectively: : +0.24%, +0.53%, +0.54% and +0.60%.

When you progress to full frame the level of that aberration increases too but it never becomes annoying, keeping below 1.5%. Our official results at 100, 200, 300 and 400 mm are respectively: +0.48%, +1.38%, +1.43% and +1.42%. These values are just slightly lower than the values generated by the Sigma C 100-400 mm. It seems this specific ‘duel in small advantages’ continues - in this category the Tamron prevails at every focal length for a change.
