Distortion
In reply to Artichoke, Nov 8, 2011

This lens does exhibit some barrel distortion, about 1% see this review for example:

This certainly chimes with my experience of the lens. Not a problem in day to day use but if a composition relies on super straight lines it would not be my first choice.

That said it is still a fantastic lens, full of character and I miss not having it. It depends what you want to use it for....
