7. Coma, astigmatism and bokeh

The coma is perhaps not a huge problem but its influence can’t be overlooked either. What’s more, the stopping down has just a slight effect here – the image you get by f/2.2 is very similar to that you get by f/1.7.

The next flaw which limits the resolution a bit is astigmatism – its value we determined as 9%. It is not a high level but you also can’t speak about a perfect correction of that aberration either.

Defocused light points look nice for a change – the light is spread evenly and onion rings are barely noticeable. The vignetting, though, makes itself felt; despite using a small Micro 4/3 sensor and stopping down the lens the images in the corners are still truncated.
