It's not like this is hard to fix... Almost every fast lens on the planet used wide open show this "fault". Likely why you returned 2 different fast lenses thinking they were all bad. Plus not being in focus, which is critical for a fast lens, will ruin a picture. Almost anyone using sloppy techniques can get decent looking images with a slow lens.

This ACR tool is made for a different color problem.

Hmm so what type of CA are you talking about that your lens has? This tool fixes both axial and lateral CA. Or did you not bother to read the link? The main problem with the image you posted is it's out of focus.

I find it it interesting many other people make some amazingly good images with this lens but then a couple of people say it's garbage, along with 2-3 other superb fast lenses.
