As I will sometimes do a bit of pixel peeping in editing my images, I am often confronted by the chromatic aberration at the magnification level I use.
And, it came to mind that maybe the CA is far more important in the ranking of lens performance than I had realized. Note, I did not say sharpness but performance as the combined result is where my interest lies. Looking at three fine lenses on DxOMark, I find some interesting numbers, and in fact these results suggest to me why I love my Sigma 35mm f/1.4, and why its rating on DxOMark is very high. But, the CA only today, as measured by DxOMark on a D800.
Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 35mm f/1.4G CA 15µm
Sigma 35mm F1.4 DG HSM A Nikon CA 6µm
Carl Zeiss Distagon T 35mm f/1.4 ZF2 Nikon CA 9µm
Maybe some others can pop in and give their thoughts regarding where CA falls in their priorities of lens evaluation. For me, I think it is near the top.
