Is My DA40 LTD Defective?

It sounds lik a stupid question because nobody's brought this up as a potential defect, but I've noticed that my DA40 ltd can have some damn nasty CAs, be they blue, purple, or sometimes greenish too. On the photozone test page, their results showed a bare minimal level of CAs, which is not what I'm seeing. Is my lens faulty?

It would be easier to answer you with examples of what you consider being nasty CA.

Can we trust the meta data on the bottom? 100mm?

That's some awful CA, worse than my 50 year old single coated lenses.
