Both lenses show red/cyan color fringing, with it being more visible with the 14-24, but this is due in large part to the somewhat smeared results of the 16-35, which smear away the color fringing.

At f/5.6 and f/8, the 14-24 maintains crispness a small notch higher than the 16-35.

Aperture f/16 brings a grayish dullness, a loss of brilliance, as expected from diffraction.
