Is fringing altogether common with prime lenses? Which prime lenses have the least amount of fringing (especially when opened to the f/1.8-2.8 aperture range)? Seriously, I know copy versions exist but overall is there a particular lens that has less.

Pretty common in fast lenses - both the 50L and 85L has quite a bit of purple fringing in high contrast areas but they are trivial to correct in Lightroom.

I think the 100L Macro has almost no fringing and neither does the 200 f/2L.

From my selection, the Zeiss 135/2 is excellent and the EF 200/2 is close behind.

Do you care what focal length, size, price, etc.?

I'm interested in any from 35-200mm but any replies would be good. The info shared may help others interested in other focal lengths. Price? Of course less is better but I'm looking for quality (without the marketing hype)

The 100mm macros are excellent in controlling CA, whereas the 85mm 1.8 is IMO, the worst.

I second what others have said... 100L has little to none, my Zeiss 100mm has some, but I don't see it often. Canon 85 1.8 has a good bit and that was one of the reasons I sold it. I haven't noticed any with the Zeiss 50mm, but I don't use these lenses very much so I might not be the best judge of them.


I want lenses more than diamonds.

Agreed, the 24L II has good flare and distortion control, but fringing is common in bright conditions.
This is correctable in Lightroom, using the CA slider.

In general the 85's are the worst, followed by the 50's. They all get better stopped down, so comparing them to the 100L, I'd be careful. Maybe they are still worse, but they are a hell of a lot better at f2.8 than f1.2-1.8.

Personally I haven't compared much because they are all such different lenses I'm never going to choose one over the other because of fringing. Just need to be aware and either stop down, deal with it in PP or perhaps choose another lens (I might very occasionally switch to the 24-105).
