Nikon 18-300 experiences - Chromatic abberation
Sep 19, 2012

I have one of these, primarily to give extra length for the Olympics, given the lens restrictions.

It is a good, versatile lens but not a fantastic one. So from that perspective, if fulfilled its aim. However at 18mm it has noticeable chromatic aberration. I have taken it back to the supplier and they examined it and we compared it with another one they had in the shop. Pretty much the same. We have sent some images off to Nikon for their comments.

Is it normal to have aberration to a level that needs correction before the image can be used?

I've tried to upload pictures but the DPReview upload isn't working for me. I'll try again later.
