Well I sent mine back as (in my opinion) its not worth the price when used with EM5, I just don't feel I should have to spend £99 on software to correct a £900 lens.

Ok I may be a bit naive, and I know some other lenses give CA but when I had Canon L lenses there was a little CA but not as much as this!!

If you are using with an EM5 YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!!

I'm an EM5 user, and agree with you. It's porbably a gem if used with Panasonic bodies like the GH2 or G5, but the CA problem is too high to be acceptable on the EM5, for that price.

If Olympus could issue a camera FW which corrects CA, I would consider it. Otherwise, no.
