Samyang 8 mm f/2.8 UMC Fisheye

5. Chromatic aberration

When it comes to a “fisheye” lens you have to take photos from a very small distance in order to include in your photo noticeable fuzzy areas consisting of objects situated far away. In such a situation you can notice a limited depth of field and a bit colouring of defocused areas. It means the longitudinal chromatic aberration is not corrected in a perfect way but its level is not very high either so it shouldn’t be a problem in an everyday usage.

The lateral chromatic aberration is very similar – its level can be described as the borderline between low and medium values. In specific situations you are able to see that aberration but it shouldn’t bother you too much.
