    I doubt it's the lens.
    Is it now with all lenses and did you change a camera setting, maybe accidentally.
    Post a sample.

    I tend to agree with Peek. Sounds like it could be a change in the magenta and/or white balance settings. But a posting of a photo before the problem and after would be of immense help.

    That was the first thing i did was change the white balance and it didn't make a differance because i did have the the white balance on flash mode then i changed it back to auto but didn't make a differance. thanks. Thats why i was woundering if it was the sensor, and the flash was on but didn't flash. No low battery eather.

    Do you observe the redish hue before (in camera) or after downloading the images? Are you shooting in RAW or jpgs? And, what program(s) do you use to import your photos from the camera to your computer?

    A thought I had, is it might not have anything to do with the camera itself, but rather an import setting that might be messing with the magenta balance. Note: I did some checking on line and this seems to be an issue that can crop up regardless of camera manufacturer. Several people found the source to be the import program they used, noting, for example Aperature importing photos with a red or green hue, whereas Lightroom did not or visa versa. Others found that it was an inadvertent adjustment to their "scene" mode selections (the "Creative Style" settings for Sony).

    If you can't find any of the before or after red hue images, try to at least describe the conditions, with as much detail as possible, under which this red hue started to appear. That way the great minds of the members of the forum will be in a better position to help distil out the potential problem areas that you can then check on.

    It is there before and after but i was reading in dslr 380/330/230. That differant lighting effects the balance to go waco sometimes and i ws taking photos right next to my orchid grow room which has a slated door and i use a 1000 watt sodium i thought i was a good distance from it but in the book it says if your shooting around a mercury vapor or sodium lamp it can do put a redish hue to the pictures on auto white balance . I think this was the problem even tho i didn't notice the light the camera picked up the color of the lighting coming out of the door from a distance
