On the top of the second page why is the distortion chart labelled 55mm ? Also the vignetting and bokeh fringing are way too high; has a lens ever had worse bokeh fringing ? Shocked this is a 3 star lens; about all it offers is ok resolution in the middle; though I suppose the corners do tighten up f4/5.6. Is this lens any better than 30 year old zuiko 50f1.8 ? Maybe better resolution ?
My vote goes for purple fringing! I've had similar problems in the past, CA sliders can help in ACR, it appears on one side of the droplet!
Was I imagining things or was there a slight notion that the focusing motor wasn't one of the best on the planet....or was it just me?

For people who merely skimmed through the review: The AF on this lens is slow a.f.
To put it into perspective, my Minolta 9000 focuses my Beercan faster under dim light compared to an A7II and this 50/1.8 combo.
Yes, and the magnification works!
Ok you call that magenta fringing BC, I would have settled for purple, due to extreme contrast, I see it every now and then with reflections of the sun on water. I use ACR 9, the manual sliders (for purple/green and their sub sliders from brown to blue) to reduce that, I have reasonable success, sometimes though it doesn't work well.
Whatever, the fringing in this shot is horrifically dire and overwhelming, whether it could remove it is doubtful. Normally green fringing would be behind the point of focus!
Edit. Klaus just slipped his post in between my reply and BC's. I guess there is some green fringing though it's a heck of a lot less obvious. Looks like the LOCAs theory stands!
I'd bin that Sony lens!
