5. Chromatic aberration

Although the Voigtlander slightly lost to the Zeiss in the sharpness category it wins when it comes to chromatic aberration correction for a change. At the edge of the APS-C sensor the Planar showed results at the level of 0.13% regardless of the aperture value. The Voigtlander’s results are better which can be seen on the graph below.

Voigtlander Nokton 58 mm f/1.4 SL II - Chromatic aberration

Overall the Voigtlander fares very well here. Both the Nikkor AF-S 1.4/50 and the Sigma 1.4/50, so praised by us, performed worse in this category. The Pentax 1.4/55 is a bit better at the maximum relative aperture but by f/2.8 and higher the Voigtlander prevails over it.
