7. Coma, astigmatism and bokeh

The Fujinon 18–55 mm doesn’t correct the coma in a perfect way but it would be unfair to say it is a particularly big problem. The result should be definitely more praised than scolded so the lens in this category we assess in a positive way.

When it comes to the astigmatism, our feelings are similar to those concerning the coma. The average difference between horizontal and vertical MTF50 function values amounts to 5.2% which is a good result, very near an ideal one in fact.

The defocused light circles are beyond any serious reproach. You can notice a lighter rim on the edge and you get a truncated circle in the corner of the frame at the maximum relative aperture but these are minor slip-ups. They indicate significant vignetting which is due to mechanical factors. Fortunately on stopping down to f/5.6 the circles look very similar on the edge of the frame and in the centre.
