7. Coma, astigmatism and bokeh

When it comes to the coma, the performance of the tested lens is faultless. In the corner of the APS-C sensor that aberration remains completely invisible and in the corners of full frame the image of the diode is deformed just slightly. Once again such a result is better than that of the Nikkor AF-S 16-35 mm f/4G ED VR which, in the full frame corners, had some issues concerning that off-axis aberration.

The astigmatism, understood as an average difference between horizontal and vertical MTF50 function values, amounted to 2.9%. It is a low value so the tested lens corrects that aberration in a proper way.

Defocused light circles look decently well. Perhaps their light spread is not perfectly even but, on the other hand, there are no high local extremes either.
