It’s clear the Sigma wins here hands down, being better not only than the older constructions like the Canon EF 1.8/28 but also prevailing over the new, optically complex instruments represented by the Otus and the Nikkor. As a result on the smaller APS-C/DX sensor you won’t notice distortion at all because a value of −0.19% is in accordance with zero within the margin of error. The aberration slightly increases to −0.86% on full frame but even such a result should be called slight. A round of applause for Sigma constructors.
