Why is the color off on the cat?
You're not using a Nikkor lens are you? You really ought to check out
Sigma. They don't put a yellow cast in whiskers!

If the Noct lens was truly "all that" you would have never sold it.
The only lens I've ever bought and later sold was a cheapo 500mm
mirror lens. That's because I make sure the lens is great before I
buy it.
I buy them to use them, not to sell them.

That's a pity Bret. You could afford some really expensive gear if you
worked out how to trade in lenses.

Why do you think the colour is off?
Is it because you believe every image must be identical to
what you think is reality?

Yes, lenses that do not work do not put colour casts anywhere,
you do have a point there.

Mostly because it is embarrasing to be so much better than the
competition.
