That's really, really bad. One of the worst examples I've seen.

Was that shot at full telephoto?

Did you test it already? Better or worse than the other one?

Hi there! New here...

Just wondering what you are seeing in the file. I do not have a trained eye and cannot see what you all do.

Look for the purple and green fringing, especially around high contrast areas. It's like riding a bike, once you know it, you will ALWAYS see it.

Those first grabs are particularly bad. The whole picture has a green/purple gradient over it and there is some serious ghosting too. The ghosting could be due to the CCDs though (or was "motion smoothing on?).

Oh yes I saw that right away! I was wondering about JARI's. I was thinking that Barry Green was responding to his posted file... My bad!

On Jari's, look at the purple fringe around the white wood work of the hut.

Ah, do you think that is what is causing the double image?

Jari's .wmv is a good example of "traditional" CA. The green fringing in one direction, magenta fringing in the other. Look at the bright highlights on the guitar frets, and the first wine glass shot, where the doily is out of focus.

As for Jemore's problem, I can't see this as being due to CA. I've never seen that type of color shift over an entire image. Could this be some sort of mis-alignment of the prism, causing some sort of internal reflections to one or more of the CCD's? Or, more likely some element of the lens out of whack causing this shift over the whole image? If it only becomes pronounced at telephoto, the lens is more likely the culprit.

If you bring Jemore's 1st and 3rd images into Photoshop, then look at the red, green and blue channels independently, it looks as if the problem is not isolated to a single CCD, as it might be if it were a prism problem. The CA in shot 3 (the out of focus element behind her shoulder) looks pretty standard, but the color shift on the wall in shot 1 is not typical at all.

As already said, CA can be greatly avoided by not shooting wide open or full telephoto. Combining both of course is signing your death sentence.
But all lenses in this price range of under $10,000 will exhibit some form of CA, so thatís not the end of the world.
If you canít afford the 13x, the only way is to learn how to work around it. But look at it from the bright side, at least you have a fully manual broadcast style lens with a full HD resolution camera and all that for under $6,000. If you look at it that way, itís not a bad deal at all now, is it?
