7. Coma, astigmatism and bokeh

The tested lens corrects the coma very well – even in the corners of full frame it influences a point-like image of a diode in a negligible way. Some minimal effects can be noticed only at 150 mm focal length.

The Sigma corrects the astigmatism splendidly as well. An average difference between horizontal and vertical MTF50 function values amounted to just 3%.

Defocused images are very nice indeed. The circles of light feature an even light spread, without any distinct extremes. A noticeable truncation of these circles in the full frame corners is a separate problem, though; still it is rather connected with vignetting which we are going to describe in the next chapter.
