Just has a look at your link Emil, thanks.

Their samples are very similar to the one I have as regards the CA. Even the centre at F1.8 is ridden with CA which doesnt go away until F4. In mine it doesnt go until F8.

Their sample also seems quite a bit sharper wide open in the centre than my copy.

You can see clearly here - non-Black central lines.

Clears at f2.8 though
