What aberrations cause this?

Hi,

Matt Granger had a short video about his 6-day experience with a Leica S3, he also shared three raws, to f/2 portraits and and an f/19 townscape image.

The f/2 portraits had some interesting flaws, adorable or not:

As you can see, some of the hair strains have double contours and bluish color, what is causing it?

Just to say, I have zero experience shooting close up portraits with f/2 lenses on medium format. My fastest MFD lens is f/3.5 and not intended for close up work. Also, I don't have access to an NBST-certified blonde lady for test shots.

Matt Granger's files may be here: https://s3.amazonaws.com/bonus_material/S3.zip

Just to say, I am thankful for Matt Granger for sharing experience and images!

Best regards

Erik
