D800 & LensAlign

After reading Luminous Landscape's glowing praise for the LensAlign, I decided to pick one up this weekend since I've always suspected that my 70-200 VR I was just a touch off.

We'll now I've got a couple more questions than answers...below are two 100% crops from my sample pictures without any AF adjustments.

1. Backfocus? Frontfocus? Yea...I can't really tell. I think the 70-200 is backfocusing.

2. Is it me, or is there a helluva lot of CA in these shots...?...and that's really the reason I'm posting this in these specific forums. I haven't had much time at all to shoot with my D800...but these first controlled tests are worrisome to me.
