Brand new 5DMKII - Is this fringing normal?

I have the old 5D MK1 and loved it. But I've been printing large lately.

This is the camera's first set of outdoor photos. A college campus building. At 100% I was surprised to see this much red and green fringing. It this normal? If not I'd better do something about it. The camera firmware is 1.2.4. And everything is pretty much factory settings.

Original file.

Crop right.

Data: 1/100, f10, 24mm, ISO 100, Flash not fired, Pattern, Aperture priority, 0EV, WB auto, sRGB.

Lens: 24-105 f4.0

I know you can fix it in software but when you are shooting a few hundred photos, this just shouldn't be part of the process at all.

I've used the exact same lens with my older 5DMK1 in similar projects under the same conditions, and there's hardly any noticeable fringing. I've never had to fix it.

Is this something I need to get Canon to fix?

I'll keep testing with my other lenses.

Thanks in advance for any comments, advise, thoughts, etc.
