6. Distortion

A standard lens shouldn't have any more serious problems related to distortion but there are exeptions to that rule. In case of older, double gauss constructions there were models with distortion amounting to even -2%.

Fortunately the constructors of the Nikkor Z 1.2/50 took this topic seriously and they didn't leave it to be corrected by software of the camera. In case of both types of detectors distortion is negligible and in accordance with zero. Officially we got -0.08% for the APS-C/DX sensor and +0.06% on full frame. Both are excellent values – a round of applause!

In this category the Nikkor manages to perform better than the G Master Sony which not only produced a tad weaker values but also tried to improve the situation with a slight level of moustache distortion.
