Update for everyone,

I sent in my previous K5, #3936994 for an exchange. I received a new unit, #3937689. I took the same test shot under the same conditions with the exact same lens and the problem is greatly reduced. I can't post images now, but I thought it was worth updating.

Additionally, I've seen Sony A55 (same sensor) users complaining about fringing as well. I wonder if it's a rare issue with the microlenses on the new Sony sensor in the K5.

Either way, I'm excited I've had it for all of 10 minutes, but I can't wait to go hiking this weekend and really use it.
