5. Chromatic and spherical aberration

Chromatic aberration

The tested lens correct the longitudinal chromatic aberration very well and, as shown in crops below, it remains invisible even at the maximum relative aperture.

Also the lateral chromatic aberration won’t be problematic here – the graph below shows the lens’s performance depending on aperture values.

Near the maximum relative aperture you see very low values of 0.03-0.04%. On stopping down the aperture the aberration increases but still it never comes closer to medium values. In this category the performance of the Fujinon should be assessed very positively.

Spherical aberration

It would be difficult to notice any “focus shift” effect in first photos of this chapter. Additionally, the circles of light we got in front of and behind the focus look almost identical. Those features make us think that spherical aberration shouldn’t be a big problem for the tested lens.
