    Hi guys,

    I'm new here and i bought a OM-D a month ago. I use alot of different camera's. The OM-D is my daily camera.

    After some shooting i find that the OM-D produces some weird purple colors in some pictures. Esspecially in the dark area's.

    The Dynamic range option was set to: a straight line in the graph, i set it to low/low. The problem is less obvious but still there. Has anybody seen this problem? I think this is a setting in the camera but which one?

    Ohyes, my iso is set to 200 and i use the 45mm f/1.8 and the 20 f/1.7

    I agree with Luke -- samples please. Having said that, my guess is purple fringing. I sold my OMD because, oddly enough, I was getting purple fringing on that camera with the same lenses that I DID not get pf from on other cameras.

    Uh, wow. Interesting supposition. The camera is causing the color shift?

    I'm really looking forward to any photos you have that show this.

    Is where you have an extreme difference between light and dark (i.e. tree branch against a bright sky).

    Do you have a filter on your camera?

    I will post some images today.. It's not color fringing? Because thats the phenonom which comes up when the contrast is too big.

    I have been fidling with the camera, the purple haze is getting less. I'll also post the settings and changed settings.
