Until Aperture can process and correct for an extreme condition like this, Lightroom, and, by extension Adobe Camera Raw, will keep it’s place on the top of my list of great raw processors. Don’t get me wrong, though. I do like Aperture. A lot. I just want it to do these kind of corrections. If there is another version on the horizon (something I don’t think is going to happen – but I’d love to be proven wrong), Aperture will need the ability to correct for color fringing and lens distortions as well as, or better than, Lightroom. Let’s hope.
