I admit it: i read too many reviews. Occasionally i see comments about a lens that talks about its 'colour reproduction'. Eg "the Tamron xx is sharp but the Canon xx gives better colour".

So 2 questions

- what does this mean
- is this relevant is you use Photoshop adn tweak settings anyways?

Thanks for your comments.

It is known as colour rendition. Some modern lenses are not totally clear. They have a tint of colour. The lens coating also plays a part in colour rendition.

It's very very very subjective and should be taken with a truckload of salt, unless you delve into the physics and optical design levels of the lens in question.

But it's a great way to non-scientifiacally describe one's opinion of color rendition!

yup,

I think lens color is REALLY err.... over rated. I think the color is affected by the WB so much more. and if you actually do any PS, it will just overwhelm whatever minute color casts in your lens....
