Would be greatful of any comments....some reviews say that Canon a70, A75 and A80 for example can show 'purple fringing' on some shots.....have any users come across this...is it that bad...?? Canon have sold a few of these...so it can't be that bad can it ???.
Also I notice they have a A85 out now !!...more confusion on which one to buy !!
I have an a70. Yes you can get this on some shots. In bright light around roof tops, trees etc. Its not that bad. They are always bringing out new models, go for the a75. We have one at work. Its a few more features than the 70. You will be pleased with the results.
Purple fringing (C/A) is a problem with most digicams and Canon are no worse than other make and a lot better than most. Probably most of the time you will not see any, and when it is apparent can usually be resolved in Photoshop.
I would suggest you forget all about CA and buy the Canon that suits you, cost wise & feature wise.
