.... I have a Canon 5D Mark2, and 50mm f1.8 lens. I find that my 50mm lens has a lot of distortion on the edges when taking shots of painting.

While in raw developing use the correction profile:

Also it has a little bit warm tone in every image (though I may be wrong about it).

Correct white balance doesn't neutralize this?

1. Is Zeiss lens really worth the price? My 50 mm Canon is only 100$.

I'd look for a EF 100mm macro (the non IS). It's Zeiss brother costs more than the double, not worth the marginal better MTF curve. I suppose that you won't note a practical difference in the final print.
