5. Chromatic and spherical aberration

Chromatic aberration

It is easy to notice problems with the longitudinal chromatic aberration and, unfortunately, they don’t disappear on stopping down the lens to f/2.8.

Fujifilm Fujinon XF 35 mm f/2 R WR - Chromatic and spherical aberration


The lateral chromatic aberration is very low near the maximum relative aperture but it increases quickly with the stopping down. As a result, on a significant stopping down, it might reach almost 0.11% so a level considered by us as medium.

Spherical aberration

The tested lens doesn’t have any ‘focus shift’ effect. Additionally the images of the circles of light we got in front of and behind the focal point were very similar. If you join these facts with a very good image quality at the maximum relative aperture there is just one conclusion to be drawn: the spherical aberration is corrected in a proper way.
