When it comes to mirrorless systems, optics constructors often give up distortion correction, pawning that task off on software of the camera.In case of lenses with angle of view amounting to 70-80 degrees we've seen distortion of -5% or even higher.

The more you should praise Fujifilm optics specialists because while constructing the Fujinon 1.4/18 they decided to correct geometric deformations and managed to reduce them almost to zero. We got practically identical results for JPEG and RAW files, amounting to -0.27%, anegligible level, and, within the margin of error, in accordance with zero. A round of applause!
