    got this on a lot of shots from yesterday, what causes it? Using a 70/300 lense at approx 180, AWB, UV filter, shutter priority.

    I'm not sure if this is a good lens or not as I don't shoot with your system. Here's some suggestions to cut down on the fringe though:

    * With lots of contrast, don't shoot wide open.
    * Avoid overexposing highlights.

    It may not be the lens but the camera. It could be due to the CCD cells micro lenses, stray UV light, stray IR light, or leaks between CCD cells.

    I'd say underexposing some would have corrected this. I also don't think the lens is at fault because purple fringing usually happens around the edges I think when the lens is at fault.
