5. Chromatic aberration

Chromatic aberration won’t be very bothersome during the work with the ZD 14-54 mm. Actually, in the middle and near the longer end of the focal lengths range we won’t have any problems with it at all as its level is low or negligible there. The biggest chance to see the aberration we get at the shortest focal length, where it reaches the borderline between the medium and high values.

In this category the ZD 14-54 mm fares definitely better than the Leica which had a higher aberration level at the shortest focal length. What’s interesting, the “kit” lens can present a challenge here. It’s true that its aberration level at the longer focal lengths is a bit higher, still not exceeding the low and medium level’s borderline, but at 14 mm it performs a bit better.
