24-105mm Severe Purple Fringing - Bad Copy?

A few days ago, I purchased a new 24-105mm F/4 L white-box lens. While using it, I noticed very bad purple fringing and sometimes red chromatic aberration. I'd say the fringing and aberration are as bad as my 18-55mm kit lens (sometimes even worse).

Here are some shots (taken in RAW format)

Taken with a 1100D


Taken with a 70D


24-105mm owners, please let me know if this is normal. Thanks.
