GF 35-70mm f4.5-f5.6 distortion test
5

Today I had a chance to perform an (unscientific) lens distortion test with the GF 35-70mm mounted on the GFX100S. I used Capture One Fuji Express to convert the RAW files w/o lens profile corrections (lens corrections to 0, default ‚100‘) and exported JPEGs to compare them to the OOC JPEGs.

The lens has barrel distortions at 35mm-55mm, flattens out around 60mm and shows minor pincushion distortion at 70mm. The 4 shots below demonstrate my results. All Pics are scaled to 6000x4500 pixel.

I‘m sure others will calculate percentages and apply more scientific methods than handholding a few shots in their lunch break. In the meantime I‘ll enjoy this little gem.
