5. Chromatic aberration

One glance at the photos below and you know that we deal here with a slight longitudinal chromatic aberration. In lenses as fast as f/1.4 it is difficult to remove this aberration completely and, as you see, even Leica didn’t manage to accomplish it. Fortunately its level is not too high and slightly decrease on stopping down.

The lateral chromatic aberration gives us almost no reasons to complain for a change. We can get a chance to see it only near the maximum relative aperture where its level is medium. Stopping down limits this aberration very quickly so by f/2.8 aperture and higher it is low, very difficult to notice in real life photos.
