Panasonic Lumix FZ200 Digital Camera Review$599.00
Chromatic aberration is a problem for this lens at all focal lengths, though it's largely restricted to the edges and corners of the frame. Breaking down to scores by focal length reveals the closest and farthest settings are about equal, and both are very slightly outperformed by the middle focal length, which has the least chromatic aberration. Still, the differences are very slight, and fringing remains a ubiquitous problem for this camera.
Radial distortion is fully corrected before the final image is output, so the most we see is 0.26% barrel distortion at medium focal lengths. Other than that, distortion is all but imperceptible.
