geraldPP: There seems to be lots of colour fringing with subjects against a bright background and I haven't seen anybody complaining.
Isn't this a deal-breaker?

I am not seeing magenta/green fringing but rather single colour fringing all over a subject which is seen against bright backgrounds. One of your tree shots has such extreme fringing that not a single branch or leaf is spared from the colours of the sky. Is this solely due to over-exposure? Magenta/Green fringing is much easier to fix because they are not the colours that are usually in the scene. Also why is there such significant processing in the first place? This is quite puzzling as I shoot JPEG with Fuji and I never have to deal with CA anymore. Yes, the X-trans sensor has its own issues regarding foliage and some conversion software but with most of the Fuji lenses I have stopped looking for CA.
Take a look at image 22 in your samples gallery =
a7RII-RS-DSC08713-ISO_100 There's HUGE fringing and artifacts at the back of his neck!

It doesn't look like Chromatic Aberration with the two colour edges ..it's more colour fringing with outlines taking on the colour of the over-exposed backgrounds. The Indian people interior shot displays this vividly. We have orange fringing on one lady, one main lady with red blooming on her hair and the man with green fringing with probably a foliage background causing it. Most cameras have some fringing but this example is worse than a compact camera. Can't figure out what the fuss is about!

Why did dpr use such poor lenses to show off the sensor?
The fringing really is bad so I'm wondering were these the best lenses Sony has. Having more resolution but with colour fringing can't be a bonus surely...

It is well-known that BBC reported the collapse of Tower 7 BEFORE it happened.
Has anybody even question that?

Thanks for liking at least one of my photos Mirra :-) I have to ask what you didn't like in my photos 14 & 15? It would help me to be a better photographer next time!

DonnCath: Thanks for the kind comments, folks.

I'll just say that my personal fave is number 15. The hands in the bottom left corner...seriously wonderful, Gerald.

Thanks Duncan!
It's such a pity the photos are so tiny...even worse for your portrait oriented pix (looks 400px tall) whereas the landscape ones are 500px wide!
In your picture we can't even appreciate the biker :-(

Jurka: Those pics are empty.

Karroly,
I tried to look for stories in your dpr photos but all I got were -
"This is a flower." "This is a stalagmite." "This is a stalactite."
You should be able to include more story in your photos too if only to learn how to read another's photo.
I contributed to some photos in this showcase and never mind if you are dismissive of my photos or not but it's totally unfair to everybody else and all dpr members.
Hopefully in future DPREVIEW can display bigger photos because you really can't see what is going on in these small samples.
cheers, gerald

CameraLabTester: This showcase should AT LEAST be displaying 100 images.

.

It would also be great if photo-showcases actually show the photos bigger and not the standard column sizes. How is anyone going to 'see' and appreciate the picture and the story?
Only on a tablet can you pinch and zoom in, albeit the same curious reduced sizes!

There are monks who travel by air to beg for money. You can find them in many Asian cities. Men of religion? I'm not convinced.

No offence to the picture or the photographer intended...just want to bring this to everyone's attention.

Better to be charitable to the local people than international travelling beggar monks!
