Re: E-M5 RAWs and CA correction
In reply to SeeRoy, Jul 16, 2012

Having shot white birds with both lenses at 300mm on an E-M5, there's zero chance you'll be happy with the photos from the Panasonic 100-300mm w/o CA correction done in post, it really is very significant (about 3 pixels). While i normally do normally correct CA (using LR4) even on the Olympus 75-300mm images, you can almost ignore the CA correction on the Oly (about 1/2 a pixel).

That said, i agree with others. Use Lightroom or Aperture or any of the other raw workflow tools and CA is not a lens problem you need to worry about.

I did keep the Oly 75-300mm and return the Panasonic. The Oly is lighter and smaller and has more range -- it's really excellent at 250mm f/8. It's really a wash at 300mm, both are a bit soft even at f/8. But for me, on a m43 system smaller is better and in this case that also comes with no compromise in quality, plus better range.
