35 mm lenses as fast as f/1.8 – 1.4 usually don't have any serious distortion problems. The worst of them on full frame could have a result of −2% and the best are able to reach a level of just −0.5%.

The Nikkor Z 35 mm f/1.8 S can be positioned somewhere in the middle. On the APS-C/DX sensor its distortion is practically imperceptible, amounting to just −0.43%. After passing to full frame it increases to −1.28%. It's worth mentioning that there is a distinct improvement; if you compare the results of the tested lens to those of the reflex camera version with the same parameters, which distortion amounted to −1.62%, you see a lot of progress.
