Here we can basically repeat our conclusions from the Canon’s 1.4/24 test. In that case we were disgusted by high coma, which in the corner of full frame was really huge, and, it was fully visible in the corner of the APS-C/DX sensor as well. The performance of the Nikkor is very similar. We know that lenses as fast and wide-angle as this one have difficulties in correcting this off-axis aberration and we didn’t count on a perfect result but such a weak performance was still a nasty surprise.

Nikon Nikkor AF-S 24 mm f/1.4G ED - Coma and astigmatism

In case of astigmatism there are much less reasons to complain. Its level amounted to 7% which is a good result and, within the margin of error, the same like that of the Canon 1.4/24.
