The lens produces significant barrel distortion at the wide angle setting which appears to be worse towards the right of the frame, and the upper left corner is quite blurred.

The centre of the frame is quite sharp, although there is some colour noise visible in the mid-tones.

Apart from the upper left, corner sharpness isn’t too bad.

There is significant pincushion distortion at the telephoto end, bending these lines in towards the centre.
