Re: Not right

So, this lens has a very strange characteristic...

hm, yes. okay, it seems you're right.

It means that the 20mm f2.8 D has an undesirable uneven distortion characteristic, which is not easy to really correct (if one wanted to) on FF. Because the center has barrel distortion while at the borders it evens out again.

yeah, that's my experience with it; though the mustache distortion is a bit more obvious, imho, on DX.
