Currently shooting a sequence of loCA comparisons between the 35/1.4G, 50/1.4G and 85/1.4G.
Seems the 85mm is the worst of all three, the 50mm looks like the tamest.
Will do f/1.4...f/5.6 comparison as loCA is still slightly visible even at f/4.0.
Will also test whether loCA removal in CaptureNX2 is successful with these test-shots under any circumstances. But as the some tests already showed, there's not much hope. In real life loCA removal seems to work sometimes though...

Here's the result for the AF-S 85/1.4G showing a crop at below 50%, followed by the AF-S 50/1.4G and lastly the AF-S 35/1.4G:

85mm:Image

50mm:Image

35mm:Image

Clicking through the image gives you access to the 100% crop. Processing was done in CaptureNX2 with standard setting meaning lateral CA removal was ON, longitudinal CA removal=OFF. You can see the greenish (background) and reddish (foreground) hues even at f/5.6.

To me, the 85mm prime seems the worst, followed by the 35/1.4 and the 50/1.4.
Fortunately CaptureNX2 can reduce the coloration quite effectively. For the results have a look at the individual reviews: 85/1.4G, 50/1.4G, 35/1.4G.

And what do you know, the lens with the least LoCa's is also the cheapest!
