Nikon Nikkor AF-S 50 mm f/1.8G

5. Chromatic aberration

Fast, expensive fixed-focal lenses of the Nikon company, which have been presented lately, didn’t perform well when it came to the correction of longitudinal chromatic aberration. What’s interesting, they could take a leaf out of the book of their much cheaper cousin which, as you can notice in crops presented below, controlls this aberration well!

The Nikkor AF-S 50 mm f/1.8 G doesn’t have any problems with the lateral chromatic aberration either. The results on the level of 0.07-0.08% are considered as low.

It is a performance a tad better than in the case of the AF 1.8/50D model which, at the maximum relative aperture, could have the aberration as high as 0.1% so on a bit higher but still moderate level.
