The chromatic aberration of the Samsung NX 18–55 mm f/3.5–5.6 OIS is not a big issue. For focal lengths of 35 mm and higher it is controlled splendidly, not even reaching 0.04%. Only at the widest angle and by higher apertures it becomes noticeable so you can spot it when you use typical landscape parameters e.g. 18 mm and f/8.0-f/11. It still remains on an acceptable level, though. Autofocus tests, performed in chapter 10, are also a perfect occasion to determine whether the longitudinal chromatic aberration can be a problem for the tested lens; it cannot.
