Just went through this entire thread. I'm not seeing the purple fringing that seems to be an issue with this lens. A lot of the exif isn't showing, but on those it is, even the wide open shots appear to be clean. Are you guys cleaning them up in post, or is the warning over-exaggerated? I'm thinking about adding this one. Some of the shots in here are really nice.
It's discussed throughout the thread. A simple answer will suffice, but feel free to move this if need be.
