Aberration... ;-(

Hello:-) ab. two weeks ago I bought my desired for a long time SMC Pentax FA 50mm f/1.4. To my horror, after takin several pictures with a full hole i noticed aberration that makes the shots unusable. My request is - "how can I remove it using eg PS or Lightroom or is it possible at all? When I use 1,8 or more the problem desapeares, but my dream was to have quite light lense...
I guess that it is not the right place for such a topic, but after seareching the forum i couldn't find any information ab it:-(
Thanks anyway for any suggestions

It's impossible to know exactly what's wrong with the photo unless we see it. You could post the photo so we can get an idea how to help you.

If the problem is chromatic aberration or 'purple fringing', removing that in Lightroom 4 is very easy - there is a slider for that that works very well.

DxO automatically removes CA for the FA 50mm 1.4.
