Color fringing at 70mm (Close Range, Dolls)

The Canon 24-70mm f/2.8L II is very well corrected for color aberrations, but it is not free of them. Also, a slight defocus and/or field curvature can increase the amount of color fringing, and the amount can also vary by zoom and focusing distance.

The color fringing is easily corrected.


This is at close range at 70mm at ƒ/5.6. Behavior might vary somewhat at distance.

Red/cyan lateral chromatic aberration appears near the edges and corners of the frame.
