I think not. I am noticing a lot of purple fringing. Here is an example, a close up on the eye of my niece taken indoors. This is the catch light (in this case the flash). I notice this a lot in bright white light situations (actually where most of the pic is btw zone 4.5-5.5 and there is a bright light somewhere in the photo). Here is a close up, and then the full shot (which I think came out so cute, if I do say so - b/c of my niece):

Well, I really dont think what you are showing is purple fringing (Chromatic Aberration). As you said yourself, it is just a catch light of the flash. There are a million other areas in the photo where purple fringing might have easily occured. Look at the edges of the hair clip and the metal net behind her. Both these things are clean and crisp.

What you are showing might be at worst being cast by your flash, or it might even be red-eye, with a wrong White Balance set up.

You can read this for a better explaination:

Relax. The picture is fine :-)

Thanks for the reply, it makes me feel better. But the WB looks fine, and the purple looks just like all of those examples of purple fringing that I see in the reviews (i.e. Steves in this forum). Honestly, purple is my favorite color and the purple fringing never really bothered me, I just read the review on this cam and they said how they practically eliminated it, but here it seemed to be pronounced. I will read your website now! Thanx again.

What really stands out to me, as compared to the FZ20, is the skin tones on your model and in several other shots I've seen around. FAR SUPERIOR to the FZ20. It looks like they have gotten rid of the red blush.
