As you noted, CBAC has a much simpler configuration which still allows you to get basic firewall functionality out of an IOS device. However, as Farrukh noted, much of the development focus will be on zone-based firewall in future releases.
Zone-based firewall's configuration is more complex, but because of this it is much more granular and allows you to do a lot more with it. If you decide to go with zone-based firewall, you'll want to make sure you understand all of the traffic flows in your network before writing the configuration or you might find yourself doing a lot of troubleshooting after the config is implemented.
