So Just a couple of days ago I was proclaiming how beautiful life is because I discovered that ditching my UV filter eliminated chromatic aberration on my low-end 75-300mm zoom lens. Alas, I spoke to soon. As I was looking through additional photos for possible inclusion on my blog, I ran across this one.
At first I didn’t notice anything unusual about it, but when I zoomed in, I noticed the telltale discolored lines. At first I hoped that these were artifacts produced by the editing I’d already done, but such was not thew case. I reverted the image to normal and the aberration was still there; if anything even more pronounced.
However, I will maintain that the effect is nevertheless greatly diminished with the absence of the filter (though enough that a photo with this property is not saleable, most likely).
