Hi arbutusq

Re your information:

Keep in mind that other manufacturers such as Olympus and Nikon (in the D300) have automatic CA and PF correction. The problem may exist in a picture but you don't see it as the camera corrects for it.
Yeah, but then Olympus and Nikon DSLR's don't have in-built 'tea-making facilities' like my K10D, do they.....lol !!!

Best regards
Richard

Hello the Sunshine Coast. I would much rather the camera did not do corrections like this all by itself.

Sometimes cameras correct things they should not. An example is automatic red-eye reduction applied to photgraphs of loons. Their eyes are hard enough to get to show up without having some auto system making the problem even worse.

The pictures are as they should be!!!! White objects' shadows are blueish! Our brains know that they should be white/grey, so we see it as white/grey. But actually those shadows are blue. The impressionist painters (19th century, Monet, Manet, Van Gogh etc.) so painted the shadows blue. All colours have their own shadow-colours.
So I would say: your camera is doing fine!!
Purple is not blue.

I very much agree. I wonder if Oly's lens reputation is due more to the software corrections that the cameras (going right back to the E1) have done for distortion, PF and vignetting.

Having said that I'd love a lens with no optical flaws that need correction
