5. Chromatic aberration

The Nikkor 18-70 mm surprised us with very good chromatic aberration correction, which for all focal lengths and all the diaphragms was never below 0.06%. How is the Nikkor 18-135 mm performing in this category? Unfortunately, poorer.

Its predecessor's behavior can be observed only in the middle of the focal length range. The chromatic aberration at this level does not exceed the acceptable level of 0.07%. However, the situation is different on both ends of the range. Here, despite the diaphragm value, the aberration reaches from 0.11% to 0.14%. Unfortunately, this level of flaw will be obviously visible in our pictures.
