Interesting thread, this.
I fly an Extra 300 civvy advanced aeros aircraft these days.
These are fitted with a comparatively large (tandem 2 seat) canopy.
In my experience they have minimal optical defects and this from soloing in the rear seat.
The downside is that for every 6 canopies produced, 4-5 are scrapped for optical distortion. This gives a price tag for a replacement of around 10,000 !
