With today’s modern technology and advanced lens design, chromatic aberration isn’t as much of a problem as it was in the early days of digital photography. However, unsightly color fringing still does occur when using certain lenses under difficult lighting conditions.

Have you ever noticed a yellow tint to the glass in a vintage lens? That may be because certain lenses in the 60s and 70s used a Thorium coating that yellows over time. Thorium has a high refractive index that improves light transmission, but it also turns out to be slightly radioactive.
