One possible reason is that the internal parts that allow the lens to auto focus were out of alignment or otherwise not working properly. This could give an inaccurate focus. I encountered this problem with a 18-55 kit lens a few years ago. The front end of the lens would get knocked one way or another while transporting it loose in my backpack. When I ...


If you have Photoshop CC, you can essentially use ACR with any image, by choosing Filter Menu > Camera Raw Filter.


I ended up converting the RGB values of my source digital image to Spectrum Power Distributions (SPD) using the algorithm Brian Smits describes in this paper: An RGB to Spectrum Conversion for Reflectances. Once I have a SPD for a given color, I apply the transmission curve to it and obtain a new SPD. Finally, I convert back that SPD to an RGB values, ...

For the case when you need the protection, it is ...


Cheap is not necessarily cheap - you can get a cheap filter that is good, but if you get one that is bad, the following are side effects that have been reported/observed by other users: focussing problems with cheap UV filters loss of sharpness in the image flares/weird reflections Add to that, a front lens element is a lot stronger than most people ...
