5. Chromatic aberration

There is a surprise here. You can see at first glance that the cheap and simple 1.8/50 lens’s construction copes with the chromatic aberration correction better than the more expensive EF 1.4/50 – it’s enough to look at the graph below. To be fair we must add, however, that the colors don’t reach an indecent level at any aperture and they can be controlled pretty well.

What’s important, when we exchange to the full frame the EF 50 f/1.4 performance is still very good - the graph below proves it clearly.

The values near the level of 0.07% are considered by us as low. The chromatic aberration won’t be bothersome in the pictures from full frame reflex cameras for sure then.
