My first attempts with this lens.

AND, right away I got into trouble. That awful colorisation (longitunal chromatic aberration) in front and behind of the focus line. Don't know if I can get rid of it somehow.

I converted the pic to B&W, but that solution cannot be used for all photos.

Any ideas to remove the colorisation?

BTW, Photozone tested this lens and claimed this is not "usually field relevant" at F/2. This is taken at F4.

Bought this lens right before the Art-version started sell. I admit being quite late with this lens, but it doesn't change the fact that this lens is still very good.


Couple of pics from my walk in local nature reserve area today.

Recently got a full frame body and this lens took on a new life for me.
I like this lens because of the focal length, the colors, the rendering, and the DOF. But the AF drives me nuts. It's beautiful when it nails focus but I can't count on it.
I'm probably going to get the "Art" version when it comes out... assuming the AF is not goofy.
Anyone else thinking about jumping to the new lens?

In Photoshop?
"Selective Color" adjustment layer
go to the magenta channel and move the sliders until the color effect you don't like is gone.

The green isn't as obtrusive but can be dealt with in the same manner.

The reason this would work with this photo is because the only magenta in the photo is your undesired color. So you just modify the color properties of that color.

Thanks for advice. I am more of a shooting type and rarely use PP software other than curves, sharpness etc. It is a whole world there unexplored for me.

My initial reaction was that how on earth can I stand a lens with such problem, but then I understood it must be the very small "highlights" in this particular pic that was caused by the sunlight coming above and from the direction that I photographed. So, avoiding such is best way, I guess. But the image type I took is naturally something I want to photograph in the future too, so I have to both select proper lenses and also think beforehand how this is possible to correct in PP if the lens is not able to handle the given task. I guess I force myself to purchase a superachromatic lens :-)

If you want to avoid the effect all together...

The effect is caused by high contrast detail inside the transition from in-focus to out-of-focus.
You can lessen the effect (or avoid it all together) by avoiding high contrast things in the transition.
The sand is almost a worst case scenario. There are thousands of tiny high contrast objects in your transition. They are all very small but when you add the together it creates a definite color cast.
