I just got home with a brand new 35mm L from calumet. I snapped a couple of shots and I am concerned with the amount of CA that I am seeing. To me this looks unacceptable, but im looking for opinions...

Wide open w/ extreme contrast and harsh lighting and this is unacceptable? :)

Shoot at f/8 then. ;)

+1

Given the conditions of your test shots, its very normal.


NADA...sold off my gear and bought a motorcycle. I might be back shooting someday...

Yeah, that's normal for very fast primes, particularly the Canon L's below 135mm (24, 35, 50, 85). Stop down a stop or two and it goes away.

In some rare occasions my 85L shows a lot of CA, ie when shooting a lamp wide open. It is visible on my LCD screen. Your 35L is acceptable, in fact, to me is normal. In all cases you will only see CA when you zoom in at the edges of the subject which is OOF.

Enjoy your lens!

If you need to crop at 100% to get what you are shooting framed properly, you might want to look into the 135L instead.

Definitely normal in these conditions. Don't forget that CA is removable in post.
