5. Chromatic aberration

As you see in the crops below the longitudinal chromatic aberration makes itself felt at the maximum relative aperture and after stopping down as well. It is not perhaps on a high level but certainly noticeable.

When it comes to the lateral chromatic aberration it would be difficult to complain about anything. Near the maximum relative aperture it is low but then increases along with the stopping down and, after a significant stop, it reaches medium levels.

The drawback of such aberration layout is the fact that the lens is nowhere free of it. At the maximum aperture, where the lateral aberration is low, we are bothered by its longitudinal variation. On stopping down the longitudinal chromatic aberration decreases but the lateral one increases sharply.
