Does FA135/2.8 give bad purple fringeing?

Quite keen on this lens but not too sure samsung is going to rebatch it to sell or not.

There is on on ebay and i am giving it a full force to bid.

I heard personally from Joele that the one he tried on 1 month ago in city giving really bad fringeing. I am not sure it was just a bad copy.

There is no news whether there will be a new lens of this nature next year by pentax. Quite keen to get something for candid (since really no luck with fa200/2.8)

Comments and experiences with this lens welcomed!

Appreciated for your time to read this

Hi roentarre

have a look at this thread:

I did some test shots with my FA135/2.8 and they look fine.

cheers

One of the photos has purple fringeing but it was no bad at all.

Great.

Do you use the lens often at all? Any candid shots with the lens?

Thanks kenny

Hi Roentarre

I have been reinstalling Windows on my computer recently so everything is still a mess, plus I am re-working my work flow so it might be a while before I can upload anything. I think you will be better off going to dpreview and do a search for "FA135" and I assure you that you will get _many_ hits!

cheers
Kenny
