Well, the sample above was maybe a little extreme, and not really done properly; if you are interested here is a link to images of some testing under less demanding circumstances, and with more consistent results --> Image .
Don't get me wrong, I do not want to bash Minolta MF lenses, actually I really want to use them.
I've got a whole bunch of them, as it was my first camera system, and I bought a few more recently.
Today came the MD 4/70-210mm (AF version aka beercan), and I love the feel of it - only I think my copy isn't too good, a bit softish at the long end .
Anyways, I took literally hundreds of test shots in the past few weeks with the Nex-5 , and keep running into CA issues .
The Apo lenses are not entirely free of CA either, but you really have to push them to get any - and they are an old design from the 80s.
To be fair, most of my MF lenses improve a lot by stopping down by just 1-2 stops, and the CA can in most cases be removed fairly easily in Photoshop .
