Re: Question about Chromatic Aberration and what it means in the world of m4/3 and RAW

Lightroom removes lateral CA automatically if you check the box labeled "Remove chromatic aberration". Don't know what the others are capable of in that regard. No RAW converter will take care of longitudinal CA automatically AFAIK. Some have tools for taking care of it manually, like the defringe tool in Lightroom.

There's definitely something going on that I don't understand.  Yesterday, when playing with Aperture, LightRoom, and Capture One, it seemed none of them removed CA (yes, even with the CA button checked).

Today, playing with just Lightroom and the original RAW file (on a different computer though), it seems that Lightroom is removing CA whether or not the CA button is checked.  I've looked at all the automatic import actions, etc. and don't see anything obvious.

Meanwhile, Aperture on the same laptop continues to not do anything with the CA.  At least not anything automatically.
