These are some of the highest scores for any lens + body combination anywhere:

16-35mm + D4 = 24
24-70mm + D4 = 30
50mm f/1.4 + D4 = 30
85mm f/1.4 + D4 = 33
105mm Micro + D4 = 35
70-200mm + D4 = 30

for comparison, the previous D3x scores are shown below:

16-35mm + D3X = 20
24-70mm + D3X = 28
50mm f/1.4 + D3X = 26
85mm f/1.4 + D3X = 30
105mm Micro + D3X = 34
70-200mm + D3X = 27

...in a website that was recently quoted in another thread, i.e. lensrentals, the 105mm micro was rated as unsatisfactory and not recommended for use with the D800. Now in this one, 105mm appears to be one of the strongest lenses. Makes you wonder...

You're talking about D800 when he's saying D4.

If the lens is the top performer on both the D4 and the D3x what would you expect on a D800? Certainly not to be outperformed by the 16-35mm for example, which on the other site is one of the recommended lenses for use with the D800 (unlike the 105)
