The coma influence on the almost spot picture of a diode is perceptible at all focal lengths. The level of this aberration is medium, though and we can’t criticize the lens for it.

It’s a bit better in the case of astigmatism – it’s average value is 6.9% and it’s very similar to the result of the Sigma 17-70 and the Canon 17-85; it’s better than the result of the Nikkor 18-70.
