Apochromatic lenses

Hello,

What is your experience with apochromatic lenses, what shooting purposes and situations justify their price premium in your opinion?

I know well Cosina's brilliant: the Voigtländer APO-Lanthar 125mm f/2.5 but I will buy it in some later time as I can't spend 1.5k - 2k USD for it at the moment.

On the exotic side there is an APO-Tele-Zenitar 135mm f/2.8 but I am not sure how close to actual apochromatic is it and about its other qualities.

I am aware of the multiple apo options that can be used only for macro but I am looking for a lens that can go beyond macro.

What apo lenses would you recommend that won't require selling the house to pay for?

Thanks!
