Telephoto lenses with moderate focal lengths usually don't have any problems with distortion correction so we didn't expect high results in this section. Accordingly, distortion level on the smaller APS-C sensor is practically imperceptible, amounting to just +0.42%.

On full frame you can notice a bit more distinct pincushion deformations, amounting to +0.88%, but still, it is not a level that should make you complain. Any value below 1.0% is very difficult to notice in real life photos.
