The lens fares a tad worse here and, taking into account the lens’s steep price, we have the right to complain a bit. The highest chromatic aberration can be noticed at the widest angle where at the maximum relative aperture it reaches 0.14% so is brushing against high and very high level borderline. Stopping down helps but still you can’t manage to decrease the aberration below a medium level. At 40 and 105 mm focal length the situation is a bit better. At the maximum aperture the aberration is high but it decreases swiftly to a medium level and by high aperture values it becomes almost low. The best performance we notice at 70 mm where the aberration decreases from a medium to a very low level.
