Thanks so much for thoroughly testing this 24-85VR lens. Your full-size samples are worth much more than all the test charts out there!

I was hoping that this lens will make it on the D800, but after examining your samples at various apertures and focal lengths, I think I will give it a miss. The CA, especially at 24mm, looks quite bad, even when stopped down. It is also fairly soft at the long end. Of course, your mileage may vary.

Many thanks!
