Hi Everyone,

This is interesting. I thought I would very quickly attempt to improve the 1.8 raw shot in LR4. This literally took me 20 seconds (& of course we could make a preset). I bumped up the clarity to +25, sharpness amount to 50, radius 1.2, detail & masking were left at default.

I then removed the CA by using the eyedropper.

I think it's fair to say the improvements are considerable!





Hmm, not really, as you can't add detail that isn't originally there, you can only enhance it. The lens isn't actually soft, it just seems to suffer from CA & lack of contrast when wide open & up until around f2.8.

The adjustments I made are no more than I would make to most images when shot in raw. It is only what most in-camera processing would do if shooting in jpeg but allowing a finer degree of control.
