CA in Swarvorski 8x30W Habicht?

I am interesting in buying a pair of Swarvorski 8x30 Habicht bins, but because very few shops seem to stock them I will probably have to do so without first getting a look at them.

Having read a lot of the previous posts about these, they seem to be very good and offer everything I need at a reasonable price.

I did however come across a couple of comments from a few years back suggesting they suffered from a lot of CA, which surprised me as and I always would not expect this in a porro - excessive CA is something I associate more with cheaper/middle class roofs

As someone who is very sensitive to CA this could be a real "deal breaker" for me. Is CA an issue with this binocular? Perhaps only with the older models?

All views/comments/help gratefully welcome!
