Viltrox AF 23 mm f/1.4 XF

6. Distortion

The Fujinon XF 23 mm f/1.4 R was praised by us for its distortion correction so we were rather curious how would the Viltrox fare in this category as it provides the same angle of view. Unfortunately it fared distinctly weaker. In the case of the Fujinon we saw results ranging from -0.60% to -0.75% and here you have to take into account a bit higher level of distortion. In case of JPEG files we got -1.47%, and -1.43% was measured for RAW files. Both values are the same within the margin of error and it means the camera doesn't correct distortion when you pass from RAWs to JPEGs. This fact doesn't surprise us because the camera body doesn't recognize the profile of optical instrument produced by a third party manufacturer.
