Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 45 mm f/1.8

7. Coma, astigmatism and bokeh

Coma makes itself felt only at the maximum relative aperture and even there it is not very high. This aberration disappears completely on stopping down to f/2.5.

Also the astigmatism doesn’t create any problems. An average difference between vertical and horizontal MTF50 function values amounted to 5% which is a value so low that can be considered negligible.
