Kers I just downloaded PhotoNinja and yes it does reduce the colour moiré.
Michael I downloaded RawTherapee and I didn’t see any improvement in the shot but saying that I have had no experience with both software’s and their interfaces.
Bill I have only had the lens for a couple of weeks and I am very impressed with the resolution. I did however try a number of this lens and found they are not created equal so I would strongly recommend that you try before you buy.
The great thing of course is the VR. My lady and I went to the local museum in Te Aroha and hand holding inside at 8th sec I was still getting sharp images and the lens is just a nice size and weight.
Like you for my paying jobs I go for primes or the pro grade zooms from Nikon but 24-85mm VR is what it is and does a good job at it.
