Nikon Nikkor AF-S DX 16-85 mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR

5. Chromatic aberration

In this category we observe a performance almost identical to the Nikkor 18-135 mm so, in fact, there is no aberration in the middle of the focal lengths range and aberration on the medium/high border for the range extremes.

Such an affliction seems to turn up no matter what system we deal with because both a Zeiss 16-80 mm and a Sigma 17-70 mm presented the same behaviour. The chromatic aberration was corrected the best in the case of an Olympus 12-60 mm where we could perceive it only at maximum aperture.
