first of all, thanks for taking your time to read this.
I have to admit I'm not only new to this forum but also new to photography itself. I bought my first dslr in April this year and taught myself to take images and postprocess them. So I'm still devoloping myself and haven't figured out, which "photographic direction" to turn to. One thing's for sure, I do want to make my living out of it.
Now I've recently discoverd MFD and it fascinated me so badly (I knew this was what I needed, without having to try it out first)... So I ended up, spending what I've got for a refurbished Phase One 645AF and a good as new ZD Back. It wasn't a difficult decision for me since I'm not the economical kind of guy anyway and I convinced myself with the thought, that if I someday want to play among the big boys, I better get to know the gear asap.
On friday I received my first lens, a Mamiya AF 45mm f/2,8, which I thought might be a good focal lentgh for shooting handheld. Sadly I haven't discovered this forum earlier, as I just read that this lens might be total crap.
Today's available light was good enough for my first test run but later on as I developed my raws I recognized a lot of, I don't know, is that chromatic abbaration? Especially when recovering dark areas. In almost every backlight shot I recovered, there are these purple shades. (Sorry, I'm not yet familiar with photographis terms in the English language).
Now my actual questions are: Does this have something to to with the lens or is something wrong with my back? Are 12 bits per channel too less to effectively recover dark areas? Are the old Mamiya AF lenses "good enough" for the ZD Back?
P1 645AF + ZD Back + 45mm @ ISO 100, 1/80s, f/8
Here's a 100% crop of what I was talking about.
^^I hope this works.
Thanks for your info of any kind!
