I recently got a battered Canon 200mm f2.8 FDn, non-IF version before yours, and it suffers the same CA and sometimes quite badly - stopping down helps a little. That aside, it is a sharp lens even at f2.8. Focusing on my 5n can be difficult having to depend on the LCD: a bit of sunlight and it's washed out. Increasing LCD brightness helps but not if the sun is in the rear. The fun of photography!
