Canon T3 Digital Camera Review$599.99
There's an average amount of chromatic aberration visible in the sample photos out of the Canon T3, with blue-green fringing very visible when looking at 100% resolution. If printing or sizing down, this will really not be a problem. The fringing is most apparent in high contrast areas. This is especially the case with highlighted backgrounds, such as leaves set against an overcast daytime sky.
As with most 18-55mm kit lenses, there is moderate barrel distortion at the wide angle, with little to no real distortion at the middle and telephoto parts of the zoom range. We found around 2.94% barrel distortion at the widest shooting angle of 18mm, with distortion all but gone by 35mm. At 55mm, this changed to a very slight pincushion, measuring just 0.35% alteration.
