Re: But you can get rid of those issues

You can process out lateral CA, but not longitudinal, it's seen as a colour shift fore and aft of the focus point.

Actually, you can fix that up a fair bit in LR4.  LR4's LoCA fixup has made my Samyang 85mm usable wide open in high-contrast situations.  It's a bit tricky, as it can "fix up" incorrectly parts of the scene that aren't LoCA, but it's quite effective a lot of the time.

But my 35mm only has significant LoCA wide open.  From F/2.8, mine yields virtually no LoCA.  Using aperture priority, it's straightforward to avoid LoCA by ensuring the body never picks wide open.

OTOH, the 35mm's LoCA isn't particularly bad for a fast lens.  Most of the F/1.4 lenses I've used are far worse (with the exception of my Samyang 24mm F/1.4).  But it's still rare to see significant LoCA at F/2.8 with any modern prime, from what I've seen.
