6. Distortion

We are very pleased that the Sony company decided to leave distortion correction to optics specialists, not programmers. It's true that a 35 mm instrument it is not especially difficult to correct so it's even more worth doing as it should be done. We are pleased to say that Sony succeeded in this area.

For the smaller APS-C sensor distortion, within the margin of error, amounts to zero. Officially, we got a result of −0.08%.

On full frame deformations are a tad more pronounced but still their level will be almost imperceptible in real life photos. Our measurements showed here slight pincushion distortion variation amounting to +0.39%.

It's worth mentioning that, after switching off optical aberration correction in the camera body, the results for JPEG and RAW files are almost the same – of course within the margin of error.
