The CA is certainly there but its hardly a deal breaker imo.

Beyond the, albeit slight, chance that your new Zeiss is a bit sub par, there are some things to keep in mind.

While Zeiss advertizes that the 100mm, f/2 macro-planar uses two elements of "special glass", they do not claim it to be an APO design. Fast non-APO lenses can show a degree of axial color at wider apertures that may be problematic. Mystique, cost or personal expectations won't change that. Aloha.
