Canon PowerShot SX50 HS Digital Camera Review$479.99
Chromatic aberration is entirely absent from the center of the frame, however this ambitious lens cannot help but fall victim to a little fringing at the edges and corners. This was apparent in our sample photos at any focal length, but in the lab we only noticed distracting fringes at maximum zoom. In the crops below, notice the blue and brown halos affecting corner shots at 215mm (and 33.2mm to a lesser extent).
Make no mistake, a lens of this design is certainly going to introduce distortion. But we test in JPEG and by the time those shots are output, the camera has already fully corrected for the effect. The most we detected was less than 1.00% at the wide angle, but remember, RAW shooting will not have this advantage.
