Compared to its predecessor, the situation got a bit worse when it comes to the chromatic aberration. In both cases this aberration is not bothersome in the 35-55 mm range, where it fluctuates around low and imperceptible levels. The biggest chances to actually notice the aberration we have at 18 mm. In the older “kit” it was the highest at the maximum aperture and it decreased on stopping down. In the new lens the situation is reverse although still the aberration level is rather medium.
