"a 35mm on a rangefinder such as a Leica doesn’t not have as much distortion as a 35mm on an SLR. "

This statement is baloney. If you're talking perspective distortion due to how close you are to a subject, it will be the same whether on a full frame SLR or Leica, and it will be the same for "equivalent" focal lengths on different format/sensor sizes. A 24mm lens on a APS-C DSLR will have the same "distortion" as a 35mm lens on a full frame camera if you photograph someone with the lens jammed in their face due to the fact the the distance to the subject will be the same in both cases for the same size image.
