Sony FE 90mm f/2.8 Macro G OSS review – Image quality: Curvilinear distortion

Macro lenses should show little distortion, and the 90mm obliges. With very slight barrel distortion giving a Standard Mobile Imaging Architecture TV distortion measurement of just -0.5%, the lens is close to perfect. In real-world sample images this level of distortion isn’t visible, and it can be corrected in-camera or when editing if necessary.

SMIATV = -0.5%
