Barrel distortion on 21mm 28 ASPH at what distance noticeable

G

Guest

I've just ordered a 21mm as I do lots of architecture and landscapes.

I'm a bit new to the rangefinder world, coming from SLR land.

I know I'll have to shoot a few rolls and experience it for myself, but does anyone have a few practical hints to pass on about when barrel distortion begins to kick in on this lens?

Thanks for your help.

I will suggest you buy one of the plastic block spirit levels that will fit in the accesory shoe and use it along with a sturdy tripod.
