Color shifting still exists with NEX-5N?

I've been looking at using the NEX-5N with some wide angle rangefinder lenses (specifically looking at either the Zeiss 21mm f/4.5 or Zeiss 18mm f/4.0). Does anyone know whether the color shifting issue still exists if I try to use this lens or if the new NEX has new microlenses to solve this issue?

I'd like to use a 5N as a portable landscape camera, but I would like more options than the 16mm or kit lens.

Thanks.

I think the NEX-5N and NEX-7 sensors have an optimized microlenses design for avoiding colour shifting an improve performance on corners with rangefinder-like wide lenses. But I have no idea about how effective it is. I'm also very interested on this question as I would like to use somethinng similar to the Heliars 12mm or 15mm.

Actually I thought the NEX-C3 microlenses were not optimized for wide angle lenses with short focal flange distance, or at least the press release and the reviews I read didn't say anything. It seems quite a big improvement over the NEX-3 & 5. Thanks for the links!

In short, the C3 seems much better than the older 3 or 5, and the 5n and 7 are supposed to have the same sensor.
While the C3 and the 5N share the same sensor, the 7 has a different 24mp sensor.
