Fast oscillations of sunspot magnetic fields were studied using visual measurements of the Zeeman splitting in the Fe I 525.02 and Fe I 630.25 lines observed in umbra of the largest sunspot of the active region NOAA 10953. During 27–28 April 2007, about 600 measurements were carried out with solar telescopes of the Kyiv and Crimea observatories including 112 quasi-simultaneous measurements (with a time gap less than 1 min). Reducing the observational data with the use of wavelet, Fourier and autocorrelation analysis showed the existence of 6–7 min and 14–16 min oscillations; their amplitudes were 2±1 cT and 3±1 cT, respectively.
