I hear you Greg. Your statement is well understood.

With the EX and upcoming cams, RED included, cost verses image quality has improved considerably over the last couple years. I was wondering when this would kick in for the prosumer video cameras. It certainly has for Digital SLRs.
Of course, not to say that RED is prosumer, this is one hell of a pro camera at a decent price! For that matter,for some, the EX may fall into a pro bracket too.

I have no intention of trashing this camera before it's even hit the shelves, it really is looking very promising (on the most part) so far. Certainly for the money, there is little to be dis-heartened about.

All I was voicing was my concern that from perhaps the only real footage (albeit highly compressed) that has been made available so far, there was one shot that stood out as demonstrating a noticeable (and IMO quite distracting) degree of CA. I am not trying to rain on Sony's parade with my comments, more to simply point out the direction of some clouds ! ;)

The questions really are;
1) How much of the effect has been exacerbated by the compression? I would expect lower-res images to disguise CA or make it less noticeable - being hidden/lost within the lower definition.

2) Is this 'as bad as it would ever get' for this camera OR are there conditions where it might be even more of an issue?

3) Is this just an early prototype/QC tolerance issue?

Again, I am not attempting to flame here - just pointing out an issue that I think deserves further testing when the time comes.
