5. Chromatic aberration

Tamron 10-24 mm is far from ideal in this category and this class, which is Sigma 10-20 mm in which the aberration didn’t exceed a small level of 0.08%. Fortunately, it’s not as bad as Tokina 12-24 and 11-16 mm, which enjoyed the disgraceful records here. It’s closer to the average results of Canon, although it loses to it a little.

Chromatic aberration will cause the most problems for the combination of the maximum aperture and the minimum focal length. Reaching there the level of 0.19% it’s really visible in the pictures. Fortunately, it decreases significantly with stopping down and for the range of f/11-22 falls to 0.12-0.13%.

There will be even less problems for longer focal lengths. Aberration stays within the range of 0.07-0.11%, so it’s at the medium level at most.
