Although this does not apply specifically to 9.5 (which isn't available on a MAC anyway), might anyone know how I can accurately reproduce a camera lens. If I look at a real camera lens, I see that there is a slight pink or green cast which is incident angle dependent, on the surface (UV filtering) and still when looking through the lens elements I can see a magnified black hole - if that makes sense?

I have tried creating the lens elements, applied realistic refraction settings, and reflections etc. but I just do not seem able to get that lens look - the result appears more like a dead piece of yes, transparent material, but does not magnify or give the impression that it is magnifying the darkness behind it.

Ideas?
