5. Chromatic aberration

Around maximum aperture, chromatic aberration is hard to overlook. The measured value of almost 0.16% is what we call a high level. No wonder it is rather clearly visible in photos. Fortunately, stopping down on the aperture lets us reduce the aberration to an average level.
