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

But then you say...

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.

The excessive purple and green fringing is why I sold my 85mm f1.2 II.

Yes, I wrote that because there is a difference between CA (lateral) and LoCA (longitudinal) what is also called bokeh fringing

So you believe that one is always an issue and the other is never an issue?
