5. Chromatic aberration

The first of the graphs, presented below, shows the measurements of chromatic aberration at the edge of the DX sensor, the second – at the edge of the FX sensor.

In both cases at no combination of focal length and aperture this aberration exceeds the level of 0.1% so it won’t be bothersome at all. The most troubles we might have in the middle of the focal lengths range but even there, at the edge of the DX sensor, it only approaches the border between low and medium level. At the shortest focal length the chromatic aberration is negligible and at the longest focal length – low. Taking into account the fact that we deal here with a fast zoom telephoto lens such a performance fully deserves our praise.

What’s interesting, the new Nikkor differs greatly from the old one in the way it corrects this aberration, although the old device also fared well in this category. In its case the situation was reverse, though – the biggest chance to see colourful borders around contrasting edges we had at the shortest focal length and wide open, where the aberration reached 0.11% so was close to the medium level.
