RAW conversion Apple Aperture 3 high saturated purple tints

Hi there,

I'm using Aperture 3 to process RAW files from my Sony A35 and A57.

Overall Aperture does a good job producing natural colors.

Only when there are intense purplish colors in the picture, they are over saturated.

Any tips on correcting these, or maybe even a preset for the mentioned camera's?

See examples below, processed with Aperture 3 and DxO trial for comparison.

The DxO output resembles the real color much better and is close to the in-camera JPEG.
