I posted this in another thread yesterday:http://www.luminous-landscape.com/forum/index.php?topic=71017.180
Now Erik Kaffehr encourages me to post it again here.
I made a test with the D800 of fellow photographer Ulrich (the guy on the picture) using my 85/1,4 AF-S at f/1,4, 1/2500th, ISO 100.
The hand had a heavy orange CA and the grey shirt suffered from purple fringing, turning it into a magenta tint.
I was advised by Erik to use the tools for removing fringing and CA in LR and after that it looked like this:
Purple fringing on the shirt was reduced to an acceptable extend, but the CA above the hand was still visible, even though it had less saturation. Erik suggested to move the hue slider, but that caused side effects like the desaturation of parts of the hand.
I was also told at f/4 the effect will have been gone, but thats not the point. I always used the maximum aperture of my lenses for a pleasing background rendition. Using the HC 150 (and other lenses like 80/2,8, 100/2,2, 210/4 and 300/4,5) at maximum aperture on my H3D39 causes some purple fringing, but much much less and absolutely no CA.
So if I´d buy a D800 to replace the Hasselblad from time to time in order to shoot a bit faster, more handheld and to carry less weight, what would be your suggestions for a quick and easy removal of the unwanted effects?
Currently I use a D700. Magnification at 12MP is much less, so the CA did not become visible.
