Too Much CA on my copy of the DFA 24-70 2.8?

Just curious about my copy of the 24-70. Sometimes it looks fine, but on some pics, the CA is a little rough. This is the upper left corner. Anyone else experience this with this lens? Is my copy experiencing excessive CA? Maybe decentered?

If that's 100% then I think you're fine. The lens isn't perfect at 24mm. In-camera corrections or a raw adjustment should be able to take care of it.

Thanks Adam,
Yeah, it's 24mm and 1:1. I don't see a lens profile for the DFA 24-70 in lightroom. Do you know the best one to use? The Tamron profile?

That should work fine, or just apply a small manual correction.
