A&P Is this because of a cheap CP?

    Quantaray CP on my XTi with the kit lens. Minus the fact I fuxored the lighting on this shot, it brings out a problem I've noticed since using it. There's a purple/blue ring that seems to surround the entire picture.

    Is it just because the CP is cheap or is there another issue going on I need to be clued in on? It's not bad when it's blown up to desktop size, but the smaller the image gets, the worse that funky ring of color around the edges becomes apparent.

    I only picked it up because it was like $35 flippin' bucks and I was on a shopping spree at a big local mall. I'll buy something fancier if this problem is merely because it's a Quantaray.

    Thanky. :wavey:

    Here's another shot where it didn't totally ruin it FWIW:

    Quantaray ftl :S

    try testing again by taking a picture with the CP on, and one with the CP off, then you can really tell.

    Nothing would have helped that first shot, you were shooting the shadow side of a light colored building and the sun was going into the lens :dunno:
