7. Coma, astigmatism and bokeh

The coma is clearly visible but only at the maximum relative aperture – at that setting it is difficult not to notice its influence on the circular image of a diode. Fortunately by stopping down by one stop you can make the problem decrease significantly. The level of this aberration in Olympus is a bit higher than that of the Panasonic 2.5/14. On the other hand, when we start to compare the same aperture values, the differences become negligible and both lenses fare similarly well.

The astigmatism of the tested lens can be described as medium at most. The average difference between vertical and horizontal MTF50 function values amounts to 9%.
