CONTAX Zeiss 35-70mm lack of CA

I’ve been shooting with the CONTAX Zeiss 35-70mm f3.4 for a few weeks now and one thing really stands out about this lens, the complete lack of chromatic aberration, even wide open. Take a look at this 100% crop in bright light:

Typically, bright white areas directly against a darker subject would produce green or violet aberrations, but not with this lens.
