Re: Examples of 50 - 60 - 85

You're welcome. I just found an example of longitudinal Cromatic Abberation on my 85mm. You can see that the highlights on the batteries in front of the one in focus are magenta and on those behind it are green. Since this subject is quite low in colour I think it is very visible, on portraits it usually isn't. You must view it at full size or even 100% to see it.
