This is an extremely alarming prospect. This was the first roll I took after disassembling the lens and repairing a loose spring on the aperture mechanism. Any way to check this w/o wasting another roll of film? Would the aberration appear in the viewfinder? I plan to check the negatives as soon as I can.

I suppose I could have screwed something up when conducting my amateur lens repair, though.
Also, the issue is at least as prevalent at the center of these images as it is on the edge of the frame. This would conflict with the information I'm seeing on chromatic aberration, which, as I'm told, is normally almost non-existant tat the center of the frame. I've been checking some older negatives taken with this camera before I did the repair using similarly cheap Kodak film and I've yet to encounter any examples of chromatic aberration. It also does not appear on the older prints, which I had developed at a different Walgreens.
