6. Distortion

The Fujinon XF 33 mm f/1.4 R LM WR is a standard lens so, in its case, we didn't expect any distortion-related problems. Still, you should remember this aberration is automatically corrected by the camera and that process can't be switched off. That's why you practically won't see any distortion in JPEG files – our official result amounted to −0.10% so, within the margin of error, in accordance with zero.

When you develop RAW files with independent software you can notice the real level of geometric deformations – a slight pincushion distortion which value we determined as +1.08%.

There is no reason to worry – many standard lenses had distortion of about 2% in absolute terms; still we think here mainly about older constructions with 6-7 elements. New, more complex models dealt with deformations noticeably better. What's interesting, the older Fujinon 1.4/35 fared a bit better in this category as well – distortion, in its case, amounted to −0.55%. Of course you should remember that its task was a tad easier as it also featured a bit narrower angle of view.
