Using Sony DT 50mm f/1.8 SAM we don’t need to worry about lateral chromatic aberration. Its level, no matter what aperture we use, oscillated between completely harmless 0.04-0.05% values. In this category the cheap Canon 1.8/50 performed similarly well. Here, Nikkor falls behind distinctly; in it chromatic aberration totaled 0.11% at maximum aperture.
