This looks somewhat normal but also an extreme worst-case scenario test where the black/white edges are going to make it look really bad. The older EF 50mm 1.2 and 85mm 1.2 had a lot of CA. Most of Canon's newer glass is excellent. It's a bit unfair for the 50mm to compare it to the Canon 85mm 1.4.

Unlike the EF 50/1.2L, the 85mm f/1.2LII has no CA issues.

The 85/1.2LII does have some pronounced LoCA at large apertures (just as the 85/1.4L and 50/1.2L). The RF 85/1.2 has improved on that a lot, with the Blue Spectrum Refractive optics. It's in the 35/1.4L II as well and and it's brilliant.
