7. Coma, astigmatism and bokeh

When it comes to coma correction, the lens should definitely be praised. That aberration is low not only in the corner of the APS-C sensor but also in the corner of full frame, where its influence on the image quality is minimal.

The astigmatism is corrected equally well. The average difference between horizontal and vertical MTF50 function values amounted to just 3.7% which is a very good result.
