7. Coma, astigmatism and bokeh

Coma can be a bit bothersome at 12-20 mm focal lengths but even there it would be difficult to call its level high. Near the longer end of the focal range that aberration becomes even lower. Overall we don’t have any reservations concerning its correction.

The astigmatism, understood as an average difference between horizontal and vertical MTF50 function values, amounted to 4.3% so was slight.

Taking into account the fact that you deal here with a zoom lens we don’t have any reservations concerning out-of-focus areas. Only a lighter rim sticks out a bit but inside the circle the light spread is quite even. Mechanical vignetting is not bothersome either.
