5. Chromatic aberration

We found it hard to believe that someone can make such a small lens, with fairly good brightness and wide angle, deprived of all aberrations. Our lack of belief had its bases, which is denoted by the first slip-up connected with chromatic aberration. It may not be a big slip-up, but it’s worth mentioning.

At the maximum aperture aberrations reaches 0.12% which is a medium result. After stopping down we get dangerously close to a large one, and at apertures from f/5.6 up enter it entirely. On account of this, aberration will bother us not only on test charts but also real life pictures.
