If you're in Lightroom, you could always use the manual Defringe eyedropper, zoom in, and click on the purple fringe. That'll get it to attempt a fix on it. Other than that, it's an optical property of that lens - not much you can do about it. If the lens isn't corrected for it, it'll happen. And even if it's correct well, but the light is hitting a certain way, it'll happen.

You do realize that is 12800 ISO ??

Every time I see a shot like that at 12800 I am blown away. I never looked for purple fringe ( which is easily removed )

Im always more concerned with noise and detail especially in darks/shadows and especially in Fur or Hair

This shot shows how amazing this sensor really is

You are also looking at a difficult situation where you have white whiskers catching and reflecting direct window light (almost like chrome) with the rest of the exposure on a half lit grey cat.

The reason I mentioned it at all, is that the Tamron 35 & 45 actually have gotten ok reviews in this area (not perfect but not bad either) so I think this is a specific case of a reflective type direct sunlight thing happening when 99% of the other image is being exposed for.

But yes it is purple


Hockey and wedding photographer. Favourite camera / lens combos: a 1DX II with a Tamron 45 1.8 VC, an A7Rii with a Canon 24-70F2.8L II, and a 5DSR with a Tamron 85 1.8 VC. Every lens I own I strongly recommend [Canon (35Lii, 100L Macro, 24-70F2.8ii, 70-200F2.8ii, 100-400Lii), Tamron (45 1.8, 85 1.8), Sigma 24-105]. If there are better lenses out there let me know because I haven't found them.

An informal portrait at lunchtime of a colleague, using my new-to-me EF 100-400 Mk II.
A viewer at work stated that it had a High School yearbook kind of feel, but I view it as a nice image that was made in a jiffy.
The subject ultimately benefited from standing there for a whole 3 minutes (he got many other images as well).

I really like the lens and I love the 1DX Mk II. I bet I come to love the lens, once I get to use it some more.

Looks like a fine portrait to me.
On the 100-400ii I have a love hate relationship with it but it's nothing to do with the lens. It's my climate/environment. I live in the Appalachian woodlands and for the last 15 days it's been cloud/rain/grey gloom. Always green and lush but often not enough light for F5.6 Luckily with the 1DXii we can push the crazy out of the ISO....so maybe I'm old school and hate to push any more than I have too.
So what I do is glance out the window and many times I grab something a little faster though knowing the 100-400ii is vastly more malleable.

MedicineMan4040,

Thanks for your comments.

I agree that the speed of the lens (4.5--5.6) will take some getting used to.
I have two of Canon's f/1.2's, their 135 f/2, many of their f/2.8's, and on reflection, at least three f/4's.
I do like using the fast-glass though.

It will take time for me to build confidence in the image-taking abilities of the 1DX Mk II, given what data I would like to see in the viewfinder for ISO, versus what is actually displayed.
I have this ISO 100 mentality, but I have scores of really decent images up to ISO 12,800 out of that body.
I guess I am just dense.

The Sardis Raptor Center gave a presentation at the Skagit River Salmon Festival yesterday. I hadn't seen a Eurasian Eagle Owl before. It's acknowledged as the largest species of owl in the world. It is a magnificent bird. These shots don't do it justice, but I was once again amazed by the level of detail captured by the 1DX2.

100% crop from the portrait (ISO 5000 with very little NR or sharpening):

Image editing ok; C&C always welcome.
