This page assesses axial chromatic aberration.
Although we see the typical red/cyan color fringing on out of focus areas, this is quite unlike the purple fringing caused by axial chromatic aberration. The red/cyan fringing is very typical in out of focus areas for most lenses, and even lenses that are well corrected for color aberrations exhibit it.
It appears there is very little axial chromatic aberration, since there is an absence of purple fringing on in-focus areas— an excellent performance. Field shots bear out this finding.
